Bright and breezy indie-pop favourites Deco are back with their brand-new single, ‘Upside Down’. It is the title-track from their debut EP which is due to be released early 2019 and will also feature previous single ‘Roam’.
It comes just after a successful summer for Deco, which saw them playing slots at major festivals such as Y-Not Festival, 110 Above Festival and Fairweather Festival.
The track itself is influenced by Eighties hitmakers such as Duran Duran and George Michael, which has resulted in a new sound that heads in a different direction from Radio 1 favourites ‘Chances’ and ‘Turn Around’.
It is step up for Deco, and sees them combines mellow vocals from lead singer Max Kendall and euphonious synth hooks to produce a feel-good song you can bop along to. Their upbeat, high energy sound is still prominent in this track, and if anything is amplified.
Kendall says “We love writing pop records and the positivity it brings to people when they listen to it and come to our shows. We’re all about making people feel good. There is no hiding the fact that this is a pop track and we can be proud of it.”.
The song is along the lines of bands such as Years & Years and Everything Everything, and reflects the substantial progress Deco have been making recently. There’s no stopping for them, and with what they have already achieved this summer alone, proves they are ones you will be hearing a lot about soon.
