young fathers feat. leith congregational choir Only God Knows (7", £5.50)label: Big Dada
‘Only God Knows’ features on the ‘T2: Trainspotting’ soundtrack, the sequel to seminal 90s film ‘Trainspotting’. “‘Trainspotting’, the original book is like a modern ‘Ulysses’. It’s unsurpassed I think, and reading it is still like the ‘rush of ocean to the heart’. You're always looking for the heartbeat of a film. For ’Trainspotting’ it was Underworld’s ‘Born Slippy’. For ‘T2’ it’s Young Fathers. Their songs are my heartbeat for the film. And ‘Only God Knows’ is that rush again. The ocean. The heart.” - Danny Boyle 18th January 2017. ‘Only God Knows’ is the most beautiful, soaring, crazy piece of punk-gospel you’ll hear in 2017, like being shot out of a cannon into the greatest atheist church in the universe, like dying and being reborn without even realising it’s happened.
