Track: Decay – Staring At The Sun

Liverpool post-hardcore outfit Decay are very pleased to share their new title track single from their forthcoming debut album, Staring At The Sun, which is released 10th July 2020 through Fox Recordings. 

Commenting on the single, vocalist, Danny Reposar, explains: “The single was the first song we wrote after finishing our first EP Modern Conversation (2019). As often happens in this scenario, we’d hit what we thought was a creative block, but forced ourselves to push through, and draw in inspiration from unusual angles – in this case from nature”. 

Staring At The Sun, aims to hold up a mirror to the human condition, embracing both the good and the bad: “At the time of writing the track we were all going through a lot of troubles and setbacks within our personal lives; death, grievance and heartbreak to name a few.”

“We wanted to write a record that ebbed and flowed in a way that our emotions were at the time of writing. The highest of highs and the lowest of lows. From being uninspired, to a major musical breakthrough, to grieving the loss of a loved one. The record is a reflection of our everyday lives in and out of the band and is something I hope a lot of people resonate with.”

You can here the heritage in this track. It’s a great radio friendly track which hides the skilled songwriting in a wall of sound thats punchy and catchy. The melodies take a few spins to finally be heard but the songs is worth the effort and is a great introduction to the band if you have not heard them before. It won’t be the last either.
