Dude York‘s “Break Up Holiday” is your newest seasonal anthem, with soaring pop punk melodies and wry lyrics about heartbreak at Yuletide. The song opens up the brand new A man A plan A canal Holiday Playlist on Spotify, featuring Christmas and Hanukkah music from AmApAc-associated acts as well as some other holiday classics chosen by the staff here in the office. Listen here!
The song is culled from Halftime For The Holidays, which is currently at radio. According to The Toronto Star, the record “touches on universal if not traditional themes.” The paper contends, “it’s the best kind of festive music: it doesn’t really sound like traditional holiday music at all.” Read the review, and view the band’s goofy press photos, here.
