Declan McKenna - Elevator Hum

Credit: Henry Pearce

Following on from his recent single Nothing Works and Sympathy, Declan McKenna has today returned with his kaleidoscopic new effort Elevator Hum. Taken from the forthcoming third album, 'What Happened To The Beach?', set for release on 9th February 2024 through Columbia Records, the track sees a stunning array of layers unravel in blossoming fashion as scattered melodies quickly build in to beautifully arranged tour de force. Speaking about the track Declan goes on to say “Elevator Hum was a tune that came in the latter stages of my first trip to LA working on the album with Luca. He threw the chords down and the riff fell into my hands. It’s a song that felt like it captured some nostalgic essence of friendship as we built a relationship through creating music together. The freedom and playfulness of the lyrics, and the gentle but fun glide of the track, take me back to being a kid in a way.” Take a listen below.
