Seattle’s Dude York bid farewell to a lover on charging new song “Tonight” — listen

Taken from the indie rock trio's upcoming Sincerely LP


Seattle indie rockers Dude York are releasing a new album called Sincerely next month. Due out through Hardly Art, the same label that gave us Chastity Belt and La Luz, the 13-track effort was produced by two fellow Washington natives, longtime Sleater-Kinney affiliate John Goodmanson and JR Slayer, aka Cody Votolato of The Blood Brothers.

As a press release notes, Sincerely is about losing and then regaining one’s inner perspective on life, and today, the three-piece has shared a song that embodies this theme as well as all the messy emotions and mood swings that it entails. Titled “Tonight”, it finds bassist/vocalist Claire England coming to terms with the end of a relationship and effectively forgoing any two-week notice. “Clearly, we’re too different/ I guess that means it’s the end,” she admits, following a savage breakdown of guitars, “Let’s wrap this up, there’s somewhere else I’ve got to be tonight.”

Stream it down below.

Sincerely officially arrives February 24th. In support, the band will tour North America beginning in February.
