Massive Attack And Young Fathers Provide Soundtrack For Climate Change Film | Music News

NO BROADCAST/ONLINE USE BEFORE 1pm. Scottish album of the year awards. Winners Young Fathers. See SWNS story SWNOISE; Newly-crowned Mercury Music Prize winners Young Fathers yesterday (Tues) slammed their home city's stringent noise policy for stifling creativity. The experimental hip-hop trio, who hail from Edinburgh, said artists were finding it tough to prosper in the city. Band member Graham Hastings said: "They shut down anything if you try to make noise. I've been in studios where these guys come with meters and tell you to get out.

 

A number of artists have been particularly vocal over the ongoing climate change summit in Paris, and two British based artists have now also echoed these concerns. Trip-hop giants Massive Attack and Mercury Prize winners Young Fathers have teamed up to score a soundtrack for La Fête est Finie a film that aims to highlight complacency towards the issue.

 

The film stars Natasha O’Keefee, who featured in BBC’s drama series Peaky Blinders. The film’s director Mark Donne released a statement explaining his vision: “There must be a legally binding deal on emissions reductions… This film is a cultural contribution to the global public atmosphere that now demands that these imperatives are achieved by our governments”.
