Indie-pop favourites Deco are back with their latest bright and breezy new single ‘Upside Down’.

The feel-good track is classic Deco style. It combines soaring melodies from the silvery vocals of lead singer, Max Kendall, and new romantic-inspired synths in the vein of Friendly Fires and Years & Years.

‘Upside Down’ has a foot stomping, synth-driven beat throughout also takes inspiration from Eighties hitmakers, Duran Duran and George Michael, resulting in a substantial progression for Deco.

Lead singer Max said: “We love writing pop records and the positivity it brings to people when they listen to it and come to our shows. We’re all about making people feel good.

“There is no hiding the fact that this is a pop track and we can be proud of it. We know for some bands it can be a hard thing to be proud of when you started off as a 4-piece guitar band.”

Deco will be heading out on a headline UK tour in Autumn, playing the following dates:

October
Tue 2nd BRISTOL, Crofters Rights
Thu 4th NEWCASTLE, Head of Steam
Sat 6th NOTTINGHAM, The Bodega
Sat 13th BIRMINGHAM, The Victoria
Sat 20th LONDON, Thousand Island

November
Wed 3rd SOUTHAMPTON, Heartbreakers
Sat 7th MANCHESTER, Gullivers
