Here at Sucking Lemons we’re always writing about decibels of some kind or another. Geddit? Ha. Anyway, terribly poor puns put aside for now, Decibels are a Northampton 5-piece formed after a rave in the woods of Northampton, where they bonded over a “shared vision” of a project fusing 4 synths, a guitar and a hell of a lot of percussion. Now, I don’t know about anyone else, but I reckon those shared visions might have been suitably substance-induced.
‘The Lesser’, the band’s first release, is a brilliantly contemporary mix of blissed-out electro, rammed full of hooks and enough bounce to make it to the indie dancefloor with ease. A little bit of surfing will unearth a few remixes the band supplied to other artists, but we’re willing to put bets on these guys breaking out big in the coming months.
Check out the video for ‘The Lesser’, released on March 26th through Serious Types:
