Happiness is to be found when in pursuit of it, in the soothed expectation, on the way, not only upon the arrival. Accepting detours, just going the way, which is anyhow not this obvious to anyone.
Thomas Bettinelli

Happiness is just a hairflip away.

"The way the system works now, you see the clothes, within an hour or so they're online, the world sees them. They don't get to a store for six months. The next week, young celebrity girls are wearing them on red carpets. They're in every magazine. The customer is bored with those clothes by the time they get to the store. They're overexposed, you're tired of them, they've lost their freshness".

Declan McKenna - "Isombard"

After "Brazil", "Paracetamol" and "Bethlehem" (click on titles to be redirected), 17-year-old Brit singer-songwriter Declan McKenna is back today with a fourth single entitled "Isombard". The kid refuses to take the easy route. He wrote "Brazil" about the reported corruption within soccer's governing body FIFA, "Paracetamol" was written about the broad misrepresentation of transgender teens in the media and was inspired by Leelah’s Law, and "Bethlehem" dealt with the tricky topic of religion. His brand new single is similarly packed with big topics. Beneath the breezy indie-pop Declan McKenna packs his take on the right-wing media in the US. "The idea of 'Isombard' is basically about this right wing Fox News-type TV presenter trying to justify things like police brutality and xenophobia", he said, "and using cases for backwards political gains but completely fumbling over his words and not really knowing what he's talking about. It’s also maybe me trying to rewrite next to of course god america i by EE Cummings, but as a pop song". While his voice for a generation tag continues to hold weight, the hyperactive single pinballs around with energetic synths and showcases his knack for that all important killer chorus -a result of his ever-improving song-writing qualities. It seems Declan McKenna’s had a pretty awesome 2016 so far, and is bound to be one of the names on those 'who’s gonna be big in 2017 ' type lists that loom on the horizon.
