Scotland-based Indie Rock powerhouse The Decrees not so subtly crashed onto our radars with the bitingly raucous hit “Liberté” at the end of 2019.
Their riotous energy had us hooked from the prelude. If you could imagine an aural mash-up of Generation Terrorists-era Manic Street Preachers, Velvet Revolver, the Strokes, Babyshambles, you may be able to get an idea of what Liberté offers.
Guitarist Callum Bell deserves a monolithic ego for their ability to carve out such striking riffs and keep the momentum throbbing right the way through Liberté. While vocalist and synth player James Miller found the perfect balance between swagger and charisma through their high-octane performance.
We’ll definitely be keeping our ear to the ground to find out what comes next from the Decrees.
You can check Liberté out for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.
