Young Guv, aka songwriter Ben Cook, is gearing up for the release of his new double album, GUV III & IV, with the first installment, GUV III, due out March 11th from. Today he's shared the album's latest single "It's Only Dancin'."
GUV III is packed front to back with undeniable hooks and crunchy guitars, offering the perfect entry point for both new listeners and those already initiated into the wide world of Guv. 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.
Pre-orders for GUV III are currently sold out.
