YOUNG GUV shares another early taste of GUV IV, with “Nowhere At All.” The track follows lead single “Change Your Mind” (which drew praise from the likes of Stereogum, Paste Magazine, Uproxx, BrookylnVegan, New Commute, and more) and finds Cook right at home with a shimmering, drum-machine-led pop tune that glides right into your head and never leaves. GUV IV, due out June 24th from via Run For Cover and Hand Drawn Dracula Records.
“This was the very last song written for these records in Los Angeles. Another nice co-write with James Matthew VII and Tommy Major on the lead guitar. I feel I’ve always hinted at new wave and sophistapop with the Guv project, and it’s definitely something I will be exploring much more on my next albums. Lyrics were taken from a little notebook I kept on me while in Taos – I actually had written this originally as this Tom Petty folk joint and they then were tried on a side project song for a jokey psych rock band we were calling Taosman 5 – but eventually found their home on this track. I think it’s my favorite single.”
