Young Guns ‘You are Not (Lonely)’ – Crank It or Yank It
British newcomers Young Guns are the subject of our scrutiny in today’s edition of ‘Crank It or Yank It’. ‘You are Not (Lonely)’ is the third single to hit radio from the band’s critically acclaimed debut album, Bones.
The band being touted by some as the next big thing made history earlier this year when their debut single ‘Bones’ went to No.1 on the Active Rock chart. Claiming the No. 1 spot on the chart is a big deal no matter who you are, but it’s unprecedented when the tune happens to be your debut single.
According to Loudwire, lead singer Gustav Wood had this to say about the band’s milestone:
To hit No. 1 in America is something most bands, including ourselves, can usually only ever dream about. To have done it with our debut single is something that is almost too incredible for us to believe. But, here we are alongside, and for the time being above, bands that we grew up listening to and we are so excited and grateful.
Flash in the pan or the real deal? Only time will tell but for now, you decide if ‘You are Not (Lonely)’ is worthy of regular airplay and we’ll see if the band have another No. 1 on their hands.
