Young Guv – “Roll With Me”

This new Young Guv album begins to take greater shape with the arrival of a second single and the lush, power pop vibes are strong here. Not as overtly shiny or as dug deep into the footsteps of The Quick and Milk n’ Cookies as his stunner Ripe 4 Luv, “Roll With Me” shows a creep towards ‘90s indie pop. There’s a quickstep tumble of drums and a shaggy, denim-clad harmony that won’t quite meet your gaze from beneath a nest of bangs. There’s a touch of Fanclub hanging on Big Star’s swoon, a little Elliott Smith and Velvet Crush in the mix and while the familiar feelings put a few hairs up on the back of the neck, he’s capturing the spaces between those artists rather than retracing their steps. Hoping the rest of the album winds up as comfortably melancholy as this one
