Southern alt rocker Willy Cobb holds nothing back on a new single entitled Sincerely FU, out now via War Buddha / Warner Records. You can watch the song’s official video below.

“I love the sound on Sincerly FU’ and what it has developed into. When I first wrote the track with Brent Cobb (Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert), it had a more Otis Redding sound, but eventually I dropped the tuning and it turned into the grungy sound we have today,” says Willy Cobb.

On the track, a woozy and boozy groove hulks along as Willy leans into an unexpectedly sunny fifties-style cadence. While distortion roars in the background, he laments, “Baby, they tried to save me, my friends and my family, from you, but I wouldn’t hear it.” Finally flipping off an ex who deserved to be jettisoned long ago, he rips a fiery fret-burning solo as a send-off on the outro.

Sincerely FU follows the raucous County Punkin’, and his debut single Cigarette Smell, which garnered widespread critical acclaim. Rolling Stone touted it among “All the Songs You Need to Know This Week.” Plus, NOTION sat down with him for an in-depth interview and professed, “the single sees Willy Cobb at his best.”

Cobb has also recently shared the stage with Chris Shiflett of Foo Fighters and The Cadillac Three across North America and Europe.

Alternative rock singer-songwriter Willy Cobb’s new music, produced and co-written with country singer Brent Cobb and The Cadillac Three leader Jaren Johnston, serves as a dynamic crash course in his blend of down-home pride and punk attitude. As a kid riding in his family’s truck, his dad would throw on Hank Williams, while his mom favored Nirvana. Now a rising talent in Nashville, the singer and guitarist still channels his upbringing in his lyrics, which pay homage to small-town misbehavior and malaise.

Not caring what people think is a crucial aspect of Cobb’s view of himself and his music. While he credits other like-minded Southern artists who flout easy genre labels, Cobb considers himself to be on a unique mission to connect with fans who might feel like outsiders in their communities. “There’s a whole minority of kids in the South that feel like me—that were weird and alternative in high school,” Cobb explains. “I want them to see that you don’t have to be country to be from Georgia.
