Dude York - Sincerely
Dude York is Peter Richards (guitar/vocals), Claire England (bass/vocals), and Andrew Hall (drums). If I correctly recall the background, the three met when students at Whitman, the highly regarded liberal arts college in Walla Walla, Washington. Perhaps that is relevant only to illustrate that the quality of the songwriting is less surprising as a result. But since I think that this band exceeds both for the quality of their sound and the content of the lyrics, it is important to us here at WYMA. Previously, Richards was the songwriter and primary vocalist, but on Sincerely England steps up in both categories, adding a depth in perspective and sound that adds greatly to the album's effect. Three songs are available to stream below. I assure you that others on the album are equally satisfying. This may be your indie rock find for the first quarter of the year.
Sincerely is out now via Hardly Art. Check the Bandcamp link below for details.
