Declan Welsh and the Decadent West
Indie ensemble hailing from East Kilbride, Scotland.
Declan Welsh is a songwriter and poet from Glasgow. With his band, The Decadent West they create music that is unapologetic, direct and with a message of humanity. With performances in Palestine (as part of a Glaswegian cultural exchange), The Great Escape and London Fashion Week under their belt in the last year, Welsh and his band are ready to take the next by storm.
Out June 1st, the Glaswegian outfit’s debut EP ‘All My Dreams Are Dull’ offers a snapshot into the mind of the young poet as he he muses about the banality of modern living as his band charge through anthemic rock songs drenched in chorus and filled with youthful energy. From the nihilistic, festival ready lead single ‘Lull’ to the Serge Gainsbourg indebted ‘Do What You Want’, Welsh explores themes of sexual liberation and toxic masculinity, with anti-fascist live favourites ‘Nazi Boys’ and ‘No Pasaran’ seeing him at his most scathing, unapologetically expressing his intolerance of the intolerant.
