‘Box’, the new single from Seattle trio Dude York opens with Peter Richards proclaiming: ‘It started with a kiss, who’d have thought it would end like this in a total eclipse? You broke my heart with your ruby lips’.
It’s a power pop-infused three-and-a-half minutes that throws together elements of Guided by Voices and early Los Campesinos! as Peter looks back on fond personal memories and declares he’ll never let go of this all-consuming love: ‘I can still remember how your hair was a wild mess. It was always everywhere.” I’ll never love again as long as I live’.
