It’s the return of songwriter Ben Cook (Fucked Up, No Warning), as he reignites his Young Guv moniker with a new single before the end of the year. “Maybe I Should Luv Somebody Else” (Run For Cover Records) is a sparkling guitar pop gem with a touch of Americana. Young Guv based in Taos, New Mexico for most of the year, Cook has delivered a homemade music video and finds Cook and his band performing as the sun starts to fall on a wide-open Southwestern scene.
Cook discussed the new song and its means of release saying:
“After such an intense year, I thought I’d share something warm and fuzzy I made in the high desert mountains with my gang. The video was shot outside of our pyramid with a $10 camera I thrifted in town. This is a Bandcamp only release because I can’t stomach supporting Spotify and the other techno-fascist streaming pigs. 2020 has shed light on a number of important issues and how musicians are treated so unjustifiably wrong is one of them for me. It is no longer the time to support such things. It has to be rethought. “
