• One of Yacht Club’s many upcoming releases.

Over the summer I featured a Young Governor song on 12 O’Clock Track. I explained how Young Governor was the insanely hooky pop alter-ego of Canadian hardcore veteran Ben Cook, who currently plays in prog-core heavy hitters Fucked Up and cut his teeth as the frontman for mosh bros No Warning. Cook’s solo and side projects have always leaned towards the accessible side of the musical spectrum, proving that he can do catchy and pretty just as well, if not better, than he can do aggro, and his new project, Yacht Club, takes this idea to the extreme.
