Young Guv Shares Video For “Every Flower I See”

Ben Cook steps out on his own with his new solo project Young Guv. We all know Ben as a member of Fucked Up and No Warning but with Young Guv, he’s showing another side of himself, musically.

Young Guv shows a lot of early promise with the first video/single “Every Flower I See.” The saccharine sweet pop track is off of his forthcoming GUV I (Run For Cover Records), which drops August 2, 2019.

Of the single, Ben Cook offers:

“Flowers have been a powerful and prominent symbol in my life for as long as I can remember. When I was young, my mom moved me and my little brother back to Toronto from the U.K. where she found a job working with plants and flowers in the back of a newspaper. She worked long hours there, but also somehow managed to keep an immaculate and beautiful garden of her own while raising us by herself. She’s actually still working that job today, and is probably in her garden right now. As I was finishing this record, I started to notice how flowers had unintentionally become an overarching theme for the album, both sonically and visually.

Cook takes his Young Guv project on the road, with dates listed below.
