Check out new music from FM 949 New Music Discovery artist, Declan McKenna - "Isombard"

 

From Clash Music:

Still almost unfathomably young, the songwriter seems to absorb influences like a sponge - an inquisitive mind, his work is already displaying a sense of social conscience.

New cut 'Isombard' continues this - recorded with James Ford at the controls, it's a sharply etched view of some of the more ugly traits in the American media.

Declan explains: “The idea of 'Isombard' is basically about this right wing Fox News-type TV presenter trying to justify things like police brutality and xenophobia, and using cases for backwards political gains, but completely fumbling over his words and not really knowing what he's talking about.” “It’s also maybe me trying to rewrite “next to of course god america i” by E. E. Cummings, but as a pop song.”
