Want to get acquainted with the Scottish hip hop trio who bagged the prize for Best British Album?

Get Up is taken from the band's full length debut studio album, Dead.

The record was named the Best British Album Of The Year at a ceremony at London's Roundhouse on 29 October, beating the likes of Bombay Bicycle Club, Damon Albarn and Royal Blood. The band has been championed by Radio X's Jim Gellatly and Scroobius Pip over the past 12 months.

The trio of Kayus Bankole, Alloysious Massaquoi and Graham "G" Hastings are based in Edinburgh and released their debut EP Tape One in 2011. The follow-up - titled Tape Two, naturally - won the SAY Award (Scottish Album Of The Year) for 2013 at a ceremony this summer.

Young Fathers play Drill Festival in Brighton on 7 December and a show at XOYO in London on 10 December.
