EP after great EP, Declan McKenna will finally be releasing the debut album we’ve been waiting for. What Do You Think About the Car will be available July 21st and I’ll be counting down.
Don’t know who McKenna is? Well, you should. Brazil, is the addicting-sweet song I first heard. Contrasted with an honest depth that would never be expected from a 15-year old songwriter, it evokes emotion and makes you fall instantly in love by commanding your attention for something worthwhile. Now three years older, and wise beyond his years. His latest track, The Kids Don’t Want to Come Home, the first to be released off of his debut, is a wildly daring look at the world through the eyes of someone with a craving for change. The young kid from the UK, is the one to keep on your radar. You might be fooled by his boyish looks to think he was another sappy love songwriter but he creates beautiful music with meaning that some songwriters fail to achieve. In a world of meaningless generic pop it’s refreshing to see someone create something worthwhile.
