YOUNG GUV – ” Cry 2 Sleep “

Posted: June 30, 2022 in MUSIC

Young Guv has shared the third single, “Cry 2 Sleep,” from GUV IV. The new album is due out June 24th from Run For Cover and Hand Drawn Dracula Records. The track follows “Change Your Mind” and “Nowhere At All” (which drew praise from the likes of Stereogum, Paste Magazine, Uproxx, BrookylnVegan, New Commute, and more) and sees Ben Cook combining hazy pedal steel with bubbling keyboards and his gentle harmonies to make something that spans the many different moods of Guv.

Young Guv has also announced a run of UK shows in June. Guv will be touring around his performance at Outbreak Festival, including shows with One Step Closer, Chastity, and more.

Young Guv (aka songwriter Ben Cook) has released his new album “GUV IV“. the album comes hot on the heels of Young Guv‘s previous full-length, “GUV III”, which just came out in March. The ever-prolific musician has amassed an impressive and wide-reaching catalogue over the years and “GUV III” and “GUV IV” are the perfect place for new listeners to jump aboard.

Where “GUV III” captured Cook’s most instantly accessible guitar pop songwriting, “GUV IV” represents the most sonically adventurous side of Young Guv. The record (which has drawn early attention from the likes of Stereogum, NPR, BrooklynVegan, Uproxx, Paste Magazine, and many more) effortlessly moves between hazy Madchester-inspired rave ups, twangy California jangle, and even homemade sophisti-pop, with Cook’s knack for melody always leading the way.

If you missed “GUV III”, you can now order “GUV III” & “IV” 2xLP. The official street date is July 15th, “Cry 2 Sleep” by Young Guv, from the album “GUV IV” out June 24th, 2022 via Run For Cover Records and Hand Drawn Dracula
