Song of the Day # 913 Declan McKenna

Heartening to hear so much talent coming from one so young, he's still seventeen. So many ideas and mood changes coming from a four minute pop song. Declan McKenna hails from Hertfordshire and has a true melodic songwriting gift. Vaguely reminiscent vocally of two La's, Lee Mavers and John Power but Bethlehem wanders off elsewhere, through a series of vaguely seventies sounding production frills. ELO come to mind at points. This is his most recent single, and a very fine one indeed. Also, a quite wonderful promo.
