Upon the release of their debut album, Good LuckDecade were a forced to be reckoned with. They scored themselves support slots on some of the biggest UK tours, performed at great festivals and even received a Kerrang! Award nomination for Best British Newcomer despite losing on the night to Neck Deep.

Recently, the band have been a little M.I.A. but the music video release of ‘Daisy May‘ last year was a sign of good things to come. Their follow-up to Good Luck was announced as Pleasantries, and saw its release on February 24. The five-piece, who hail from Bath, headed out on an extensive UK tour in support of the record and we headed down to their show at London’s Boston Music Rooms to check it out.

Regardless of the rather intimate surroundings, Decade were capable of delivering a performance that was larger than life. They kicked things off with ‘Peach Milk‘, a single and therefore a track that had eager fans singing along in particular, and graciously played through a 14 song set that put brand new tracks from Pleasantries on display but also catered to perhaps older fans with a few choice picks from Good Luck including ‘British Weather‘ and ‘Brainfreeze‘.

Lead singer Alex Sears exudes a confidence that one would usually expect from a frontman at stadium level, and while Decade are evidently far from executing a show that size it is always interesting to see a musician who is prepared for the future— even if it’s unintentional. Sears vocal range is incredible, complimenting the output of the rest of the band.

One of the things that Decade succeed at above other bands at their level is having a polished performance. They may not be playing the biggest of clubs across the UK, but they toured nonstop during the plug of Good Luck, alongside the likes of Lower Than Atlantis and Mayday Parade, so have plenty of experience being on stage and it certainly showed as they supplied fans with a brilliantly clean-cut set.
