Declan McKenna / Girli





  • Bristol


Following twelve months of persistent touring across the UK, US, and Europe, Declan and his band’s live shows have soon become spectacles in themselves. As an artist who interacts regularly with his fanbase on social media, the energy and elation in the ever increasing sized rooms when the artist and fans are all brought together, makes for an incredible atmosphere and experience. 

in a very short period of time, the recently turned 18 years old has become synonymous with wrapping his fizzing alt-pop songs in smart, engaged lyrical content. It’s been a timely arrival for this young British musician who doesn’t proclaim to have all the answers, but believes it his duty to at least pose a few pertinent questions. Crucially perhaps, none of the activist in Declan comes at the expense of his ear for a melody, and with new single, Kids Don’t Wanna Come Home, Declan has divulged another tantalising taster to his debut album, due for announcement imminently.
