Declan Carrier

FRESH: ‘Bubble’ – Declan Carrier

Declan Carrier is back with “Bubble”!

by Christopher Smith

Australian born Brit Declan Carrier, who we have been following and profiling all this year, is no singer/songwriter with a guitar and loop pedal; he’s the real pop deal and he’s not afraid to own it! His infectious stage presence, undeniable groove and flair for interesting fashion choices oozes a level of confidence that simply demands the full attention of anyone within earshot.

So we are delighted to announce Declan’s brand new single “Bubble”, his third and the follow up to “Way You Move” and “Saving All My Love“, which we featured earlier this year. Declan describes “Bubble” as a “funky disco pop rock to get you moving!” Declan wants to spread the word about the song as he is keen to find someone to remix the track! Get in touch with Declan or us is you’re interested, please!

Having grown up on the remote beaches north of Sydney, Declan returned to London, a city which he has called home for the past six years. Since then, Declan has honed his trade to a point at which his unashamedly pop-driven vocals and disco-reminiscent sound turns heads wherever he travels. With an innate talent for songwriting, a fierce work ethic and a knack for finding friends in the most obscure of places, Declan Carrier is gunning for Michael Jackson’s spot as the King of Pop. It’s just a shame he can’t dance to save his life!

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
