Very often, my Son Luke will share his personal new music discoveries with me. At this, generally I’ll increase an eyebrow, different occasions after I suspect he’s onto one thing. I’ll swing into motion and write about these finds right here on the weblog. The opposite day he offered the London-based band DECO to me, and I knew directly that I wanted to characteristic them right here.
To inform the reality, they’ve created some buzz for some time within the UK. With their iconic 80s mashups of common tracks on YouTube and TikTok going viral. I do know we’ve got readers from throughout Europe and the USA who come to this weblog for our solutions of synth-pop and electronic-pop artists. I’m positive they are going to be spun right into a frenzy by Deco when listening to the band’s 80s-infused type pop songs.
Within the UK, DECO took half in BBC Radio 1’s Massive weekend 2021. Has had TV protection on BBC Information, and CBBC, and took part in “Stroll the Line” (a music competitors) earlier this 12 months. Since their look on the latter, they’ve secured some spectacular tour assist slots as openers for Tony Hadley (Spandau Ballet,) Tradition Membership and A-ha. They’ve additionally been popping up on the invoice at high-profile music festivals this summer season.
The reality is, they can not fail to be missed, as they’re in every single place!
Their unique track, “Rain,” formally acquired launched two months in the past. DECO is rapidly turning into famend for bops, and that is one among them. Upbeat, glistening synths and rife with sax attraction. I don’t doubt they may have extra new music out when the touring/pageant season ends. Nevertheless, if you wish to get to know this band earlier than they explode in greatness. It is best to do that! Try their 80s mashups, uploaded to YouTube, as these are most excellently executed whereas sound uber contemporary. My favourites – are the 80s spin they placed on “Bittersweet Symphony” by The Verve. The Artic Monkeys x Yazoo is mashup slaps and is fairly enjoyable as effectively. In all honesty, for 80s, 90s and 00s popular culture addicts, every thing you hear from DECO is obsession worthy.
