Fucked Up’s Young Guv Shows His Softer Side To The “Wrong Crowd”

Hear the guitarist’s first single from his debut LP as Young Guv.

You probably best know Ben Cook's work from his furious guitar-slashing as a member of Canadian hardcore titans Fucked Up—but his side project Young Guv gives him a venue to explore different sounds, as shown on the seven-minute soft-pop tune "Wrong Crowd." The tune's taken from his debut LP under the moniker, Ripe 4 Luv, which will be released on March 10 via indie-pop institution Slumberland.

Cook explained the song's origins in an email to FADER: "'Wrong Crowd' was written on a day off in Australia in a random person's bedroom I found off Facebook to work on music that day. The song is about a man wrongly accused of robbery, writing his wife from prison."
