YOUNG GUV, aka songwriter Ben Cook (vocalist of No Warning and former guitarist of Fucked Up), recently announced his new double album, GUV III & GUV IV, with the first installment, GUV III, due out March 11th from Run For Cover and Hand Drawn Dracula Records. Today he’s shared the album’s latest single “It’s Only Dancin’.”
Like the album’s previous singles “Only Wanna See U Tonight” and “Lo Lo Lonely” (which garnered attention from the likes of Stereogum, BrooklynVegan, Uproxx, Raven Sings The Blues, and more) “It’s Only Dancin'” harnesses Cook’s deep well of influences and channels them into Young Guv’s untouchably catchy power pop machine. The song’s glistening guitars and quick tempo sound like Tom Petty on a Paul Collins kick, delivering a jolt of melody that feels timeless and distinctly Guv all at once.
