The way music works is always a bit of a mystery to most of us. A band can be around for a good while and when people start paying attention, they can think that the band came out of nowhere when they’ve been around all that time prior. Even though Seattle’s Dude York has been a band for ten years, they aren’t exactly a household name either. Of course, with their new single “Falling” from their upcoming album of the same name due in late July, they could be the next band that seems like they blew up over night.
For starters, the animation for this video is really beautiful and it should be noted. Though the track opens with a kind of spacey vibe, that quickly changes with fuzzy guitars and a snappy stride. The song is upbeat with the vocals at the top of the mix, placing the words into your ears while you bop your head along. The backing vocals and the drums add a nice touch to the catchy indie rock tone of the track. The song has plenty of hooks and it’s hard to not remember once it comes to an end.
“Falling” is available to stream wherever you stream music, it can be purchased in all online music retailers and Falling can be pre-ordered directly from Hardly Art on multiple formats and bundles before it gets released on July 26. Dude York will be on tour beginning May 17 in Portland, OR at Hawthorne Theatre until August 10 in Baltimore, MD at Ottobar. A complete list of their upcoming performances can be accessed here.
