Another Glastonbury-flavoured song today, from London teenager Declan McKenna – the winner of the festival’s emerging talent competition earlier this year. That victory won him a spot onstage at the Worthy Farm extravaganza and he’s just released this track Brazil to mark the occasion.
And you know what? This is really impressive stuff for a 16 year old. Swirly indie pop, insightful lyrics and an assured delivery that many of his older, more world-weary contemporaries would be proud of.
Take a listen and see what you think. As introductions go, McKenna’s Brazil should be a welcome and impressive one.
