If you’re looking for the perfect single packed full of talent, has a slight chilled vibe to it and will instantly grab your attention than look no further.
It usually takes me a few listens to a track to fully get into it however when I pressed play on this track, I was instantly hooked but the instrumental at the very beginning of the single, by the time the vocals kicked in I was tapping along, and I was completely sold with the whole sound.
The combination of instrumentals with the gripping will awake every hair on the back of your neck. They have managed to create a sound which you will instantly fall in love with it. What I also love is the fact I couldn’t compare the sound to another band, they have created a sound which is theirs and it’s refreshing to hear that.
Compared to the other tracks I have heard from Louis and The Shakes this one a little more slower but it still manages to give you that kick which every track from this band does and still has you gripped. Moving onto the lyrics, all I can say is I guarantee you will be able to connect with them instantly! They are relatable and you can’t help but listen to every single word and become hooked.
An impressive single from a talented bad who I can’t wait to hear more from. Go and listen to this track, trust me you will not be disappointed.
Great job guys!

The Decades release their new single ‘Fool’s Gold’. The band said, “with ‘Fool’s Gold’ we really wanted to say something. There’s this lifestyle that is so common with our generation of constant partying and a cycle of one night stands and relationships that go nowhere. It comes out of loneliness and a desperate need for a connection to others and finding meaning and value in the wrong places”. The different musical interests of all four members converge to give a blend of classic rock elements and an indie vibe that is apparent across their releases to date. Musically, ‘Fool’s Gold’ takes advantage of everything that the group has to offer. David Mulvey’s pulsing drum tracks provide the foundation that the song is built upon, allowing Myles Keogh’s driving bass line to push the song forward towards its peak. With this backdrop in place, there is plenty of room for the interweaving guitar parts of Rhys Doyle and Seán Fox. Multiple layers of both rhythm and lead guitar tracks are heard, giving the harmonic basis for Sean’s powerful vocals.Continue reading “The Decades – ‘Fool’s Gold’”
