Tune in now, because the change is a-coming.



Banger



When you think of a true ‘artist’ you think of somebody who doesn’t sit still, who’s always looking ahead and who can twist and bend what they do into new and distinct flavours. Declan McKenna is already laying out banger after banger, but with ‘The Kids Don’t Wanna Come Home’ he’s confirmed that he’s an artist who could be one of the most exciting we’ve seen in a long ol’ time.

Bristling with that knack for turning the disenchanted despair into euphoric and uplifting visions for the future, ‘The Kids Don’t Wanna Come Home’ takes everything Declan has done so far and lifts it to a new level. Calling out from an entire generation, it’s a defiant youthful statement - not just bursting energy but of a line in the sand; a statement being made that whilst 2017 looks fucked beyond belief, the future can be paved in a completely different way. It's a flag-waving starting pistol for change that could only have come from the mind of Declan McKenna.

‘The Kids Don’t Wanna Come Home’ cements Declan as a vital voice for 2017; an artist flexing his muscles to show that he’s on that pedestal with two feet firmly down. Tune in now, because the change is a-coming. Jamie Muir
