Declan McKenna – Bethlehem

Declan McKenna is the young fella that everyone would love to have: freshly signed to Columbia and with a great taste in making music. After exploring the world of drugs with Paracetamol, he’s now back talking about Jesus Christ’s birthplace and religion with his brand new single Bethlehem (actually and, according to the PR, the song “lyrically equates to a story of hate and violence with religion being used as its justification”). Declan’s way is based on slow-paced psychedelic anthems with mature vocals perfectly surfing looping guitar riffs and an overall sensation that this project has the right skills to breakthrough on UK’s radios in the blink of an eye.

Bethlehem is available to buy digitally from May 20th and on vinyl from the July 1st via Columbia Records.
