Declan Mckenna ends hiatus with new singles

After years of anticipation Declan McKenna breaks his silence to release two awesome singles, the latest being ‘Beautiful People’. The track starts in a lull of feigned laziness before twisting into an explosive climax spurred on by Declan’s more than justified confidence. ‘Beautiful People’ is a rollercoaster, swelling and falling in waves of gritty chorus with incessantly catchy lyrics. Finally he leaves us with an alien like riff; all electricity and buzz.

Despite this masterpiece and ‘British Bombs’ being only a taste of the album to come, we feel spoiled for choice as he presents us with these two completely unique tracks. Now all we can do is wait until May for the rest to hit our headphones, at least for now we have these two tracks to keep the wolf from the door.
