Younghusband cover John Cale's "Gun"

London shoegaze quartet Younghusband cover John Cale's Gun. It's the B-side of their forthcoming new single Left Of The Rocks (February 17 via Sonic Cathedral). Lead singer Euan Hinshelwood in The Quietus:

We covered the John Cale song because we’re all big fans of the Velvets and many of their solo albums, too. Lyrically ‘Gun’ is a great story – very dark, intriguing characters. We were never going to try and do a similar version to the original because it has an almost untouchable energy, full of amphetamine. We wanted to make it kind of spookier and warped.
