Though only 21, Declan is a household name in the UK, first breaking with his song ‘Brazil’, a pop song about FIFA’s controversial handling of 2012’s World Cup.
His new album ‘Zeros’ will be released on August 21st. The album, produced by Jay Joyce with mixing by Spike Stent, was recorded in Nashville and is his first since his critically acclaimed debut, 2017’s ‘What Do You Think About The Car?’, which NPR Music hailed as “a powerful, clever album” and lead Rolling Stone to name him an “Artist You Need to Know.”
‘The Key to Life on Earth’ is in the best tradition of melodic indie Brit-pop that bands like KEANE bring to the table. Decalan Mckenna’s ravishing mix of school antics and irreverent charms, deliver a different layer of coaxing, that just speaks more and translates like how it should be.
This single is highly decoratively sentinel to everything that is human and limitless. It’s a big stance on message, that is beautifully constructed and expressed by the lovely artist.
