Young Guv, (Fucked Up, No Warning), has dropped “Maybe I Should Luv Somebody,” the new single is now out via Run For Cover Records. Ben Cook AKA: Young Guv has been based in Taos, New Mexico for most of the year and the song’s homemade music video finds Cook and his band performing as the sun starts to fall on a wide open Southwestern scene.
Young Guv has been a long-running project that’s allowed Cook to explore everything from scrappy punk, guitar pop, ’80s influenced R&B, and beyond. Cook’s previous single “Cold In The Summer” featured slide guitar and hints of Americana that are now brought center stage with “Maybe I Should Luv Somebody Else.”
“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. “
