Dude York’s “Falling” Will Make Poptimists Out Of Us All

by BUST Magazine


(Hardly Art) 

The Seattle-based Dude York continues to lean into its signature power-pop sound on its newest release. Falling is the band’s most polished and produced work to date, harkening back to the pop-punk of the early aughts—energetic and fun, if a little melodramatic or oversimplified at times. Bassist Claire England takes on more vocal duties than on previous albums, and her songs with guitarist Peter Richards create a dynamic soundscape. Selections like the title track and “Unexpected” hit just the right amount of charm and nostalgia to make poptimists out of the rest of us. (4/5)
