Declan Welsh is a poet, songwriter, and a political agitator.
Based in Glasgow, his work has taken him as far as Palestine, while a recent Stand Up To Racism march in his home city saw Declan perform his poetry to 5000 people.
It's with Declan Welsh & The Decadent West that he finds his broadest audience, with the biting sounds of their debut EP 'All My Dreams Are Dull' causing a smash on its release.
Biting riffs, thundering arrangements, and vocals that surge forward, never looking back, the band's electrifying approach has garnered a cult underground following.
A full album arrives this year, with Declan Welsh & The Decadent West sharing brand new single 'Absurb'.
Catchy-as-hell while dwelling on Declan's dexterous word play, it's mischievously intelligent, a wicked piece of pop-edged indie rock.
