A little while ago I received several emails from Chalk Press Agency about an artist called Declan McKenna. After getting over my birthday relaxation period, I finally took notice of these emails and listened to his latest track (after all, they had been ever so kind last year having sent me a private link to The Big Moon’s Formidable video prior to its release). I thoroughly enjoyed what I heard, he puts his passion for music and politics together in such an ingenious way, stating the problems of the world, while giving us something to sing about. I was a little late for promoting it, so decided to feature McKenna in my Artist of the Week slot over at Vulture Hound, which you can find on the website now:
My article is also included in the magazine (with McKenna as Artist of the Month), which is available online and in print:
Thanks to Harry at Chalk Press Agency for the heads up on this guy, definitely gonna keep an eye on him for the future.
