Declan Welsh & The Decadent West Unveil “Mercy”

Declan Welsh & The Decadent West Unveil New Single/Video "Mercy"

Glasgow indie rock/post punk band Declan Welsh and The Decadent West have unveiled the video for their brand new single “Mercy“.

The song, recorded in Los Angeles with Luca Buccellati, is part of their sophomore album, their 2019 debut ‘Cheaply Bought, Expensively Sold’, out next year. Get it here.

The band have this to say on the track:

“‘Mercy’ is about how hard it is to chuck habits. Drink, cigarettes, drugs, food, social media, people, relationships – everyone’s been in a situation where they are in a bit of a loop of wanting to walk away from something and getting sucked back in.”

“It’s what the song sounded like, not the real lows of that kinda thing but the last remnants of the high, when you are still getting something from it but you’re starting to know you’ve got to give it up sometime soon. The Id and the Superego battling it out and the Id winning for one of the last times.”
