We’re utterly delighted to welcome Declan McKenna: one of the most vital voices of his generation.
Since his brilliant breakthrough single ‘Brazil’, Declan McKenna has continued to produce protest songs of the highest quality. Jaunty, jangly indie-pop; as poignant as it is catchy. Influences range from David Bowie to Abba.
The most spectacular of occasions for Ramsgate – an intimate show with one of the UK’s greatest young stars.
“To all intents and purposes McKenna is a teen breakout star, but describing him that way feels reductive after listening to his debut, on which he proves himself a serious lyricist who deserves more than to be put in a box” – NME
“Euphoric, uplifting pop construction. A cracking debut” – The Guardian
“Smart, engaging lyrics are a widespread and continual theme on McKenna’s initial offering” – The Line of Best Fit
“It’s smart and it’s naive, it’s funny and it’s bleak, and, most importantly, it understands the appeal of pop while being frustrated at the apolitical landscape in which it exists” – No Ripcord
