Review - Young Guns - In The Night (Single)

Young Guns - In The Night (Single)

View The Review

7 out of 10

Is their name a nod towards the 80s western flicks? A gesture to Bon Jovi, perhaps? Or simply a turn of phrase used to describe youngsters often clich├ęd to rebellious types or those driven by their angst? Who knows, it matters not once the tremors of Young Gun's hearty stomper gets on track - like the rumblings from the sturdy engine of a truck.er, a shiny new truck ferrying good-looking boys that is. For there's no ignoring the polished appearance that the chaps in this Buckinghamshire five-piece have, although their sound renders this sheen a little ragged around the edges. While the appealing combination of raging riffs and chugging rhythm draws ever-so-slight comparisons with Bullet For My Valentine and even Avenged Sevenfold in parts, the whole package offers more similarities with glam-rock n' rollers, Backyard Babies, and with this look Young Guns may be ideal poster material too.
