Wicklow indie band The Decades release brand new single ‘Overwhelming’

May 26, 2023


The Decades are a four-piece indie band that hail from Wicklow, Ireland. The band consists of Sean Fox on vocals, Rhys Doyle on lead guitar, Myles Keogh on bass and David Mulvey on drums.

During their time of starting off their music career as young musicians, the band have taken inspirations from a wide range of artists such as The Beatles and U2 and some more modern artists such as Sam Fender and Catfish and The Bottlemen. These influences can be heard throughout the band’s sound in singles such as ‘Electricity’ and ‘Fool’s Gold’. The band’s unique sound clearly resonates with listeners as their first two singles both reached number 1 in the iTunes Charts. Their music has also placed on the official charts of the Irish homegrown top 20.

‘Overwhelming’ is the latest single by The Decades. Lyrically, the song hints at the consuming feeling of being overwhelmed in a new relationship, the feeling of things moving too quickly and the need to run away from what’s facing you.

Although the song is deeply personal, its main theme is one that we can all connect with in some way. These fears are things we all face in our everyday lives and the song’s overarching theme is the internal battle we must go through constantly to try and overcome them.

‘Overwhelming’ is available on all major streaming platforms.
