Declan Welsh is a songwriter and poet from Glasgow. Combining taut indie rock and strongly held beliefs,  Declan and his band, The Decadent West create music that is unapologetic, direct and with a message of humanity that has won over scores of fans already. Releasing their rousing first EP ‘All My Dreams Are Dull’ to widespread approval in 2018, the Decadent West now look to truly set out their stall with upcoming album: ‘Cheaply Bought, Expensively Sold’, 12 studio recordings produced by the esteemed Chris Marshall in Glasgow (Gerry Cinnamon, Baby Strange, The Dunts, The Van T’s etc).

In the lead-up to their new album, the Declan & Co. have whet appetites with recent single ‘How Does Your Love’ a disco-flecked indie belter that finds nuanced nostalgia in our regional nightlife scene (which was also accompanied by an extended 17-minute mock-umentary guest starring ‘Limmy’s Show’ comedy legend Paul McCole) ; plus ’No Fun’, a sardonic swipe at the scenester culture found to be lingering in Scottish flat parties, and, well everywhere for that matter. 

With enveloping narratives every bit about the personal as the political, the songs to be found on their debut outing starkly set the Decadent West apart as one of the most erudite and essential new bands to believe in for the here and now.

Declan Welsh & The Decadent West -’Cheaply Bought, Expensively Sold’- 18th October 2019 – Via Modern Sky UK

Following a year of sold out shows across the UK and performances as diverse as those in Palestine (as part of a Glaswegian cultural exchange), The Great EscapeReeperbahn, London Fashion Week, and their electrifying Billy Bragg-approved appearance at Glastonbury 2019; The Decadent West have solidified themselves as one of Scotland’s most promising talents and an unmissable live prospect. From 

the 31st of October, the Glaswegian band will also be taking their politically charged indie-punk to the irate masses in a run of Winter UK Tour dates to see out the year.
