Dude York is a Locals Only favorite for plenty of reasons, one of which is that they are just like us. I mean to say they are big nerds who like comic books, super hero movies and other things that would have gotten you made fun of in high school but are cool now!

With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 coming out on May 5, Dude York was invited by A.V. Club to cover one of the songs off the movie's soundtrack. Like the first film, which stars another local Chris Pratt (he's from Lake Stevens), the sequel is backed by classic tunes from the 60s and 70s and includes the classic song "Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)" by Looking Glass, which sold more than one million copies after its release in 1972.

Dude York's cover, which you can hear below, is a faster-paced spin on the song and feels like it could fit right in with the other songs on their latest album Sincerely.
