In recognition of Valentine’s Day, Seattle trio Dude York have shared another arresting single from their upcoming full-length Sincerely, out February 24th. Appropriately titled “Love Is,” the song is about “the balance you face when turning your experiences into art and the line you cross when realizing you are a participant in someone else’s story as much as they are in yours, especially in a history of music where women’s contributions have been routinely overshadowed or villainized in comparison to their male partners,” according to bassist Claire England, who wrote and sings lead vocals on the track. Stream “Love Is” below.
