Tim Bruns (Ex-Churchill) Starts New Band, Premieres Killer Folk Rocker 'Young'

You might remember guitarist-vocalist Tim Bruns as co-frontman of the Denver-based band Churchill. He’s back with a new project, and we’ve got the first look at their new single -- a poignant folk rocker called “Young.”

Going simply as Bruns now, the frontman tells Billboard about the song’s not-so-secret subject matter.

“‘Young’ is a song about getting older,” he says. “It’s a song about how great time-tested love is and how, even though you may have been with someone for a long time, there is always more to get to know. It’s the remembering of the first time you met and the looking forward to the future.” 

The song itself is time-tested, too. Sometimes, you just need a reminder at how luscious an electric and acoustic guitar can sound when their melodies interlock just so.

“Young” follows “Buzzards,” the first track from Tim’s new project, which he shared back in July. His self-titled debut EP comes out Oct. 30. 

Bruns also features guitarist Ryan Harris Brown and drummer Tom Whall.

And in case you need a primer on Bruns’ old band, Churchill released one LP, 2011’s Happy Sad. Their single “Change” was their biggest hit, peaking at No. 23 over nine weeks on Alternative Songs
