Declan McKenna gives Gen Y a voice on new single ‘The Kids Don’t Wanna Come Home’


When you come across a Declan McKenna record, you know the meaning in the song is worth your attention. ‘The Kids Don’t Wanna Come Home’ is Declan’s rally against the widespread assumption that the younger generation are self-obsessed and merely glued to their mobile phones.

‘The Kids Don’t Wanna Come Home’ elicits a feeling of hope, and how ultimately the youth want to positively fight for change through both art and conversation. Declan’s music gives our generation a voice.

Modest, Declan McKenna is a young British musician who doesn’t proclaim to have all the answers; but believes it his duty to at least pose a few pertinent questions.

We believe ‘The Kids Don’t Wanna Come Home’ is Declan’s best work to date. The track will feature on McKenna’s as-yet-untitled debut album, due out this spring.
