This Enfield native (raised in Hertfordshire, north of London) started his career rather young: at 16 years old, he composed his first song, Brazil, which denounced FIFA’s practices and their disastrous consequences on the poorest fringes of Brazilian society. Such was the first brick in a both pop and politically engaged edifice, which continues with unrestrained energy on this album. But his political engagement - which dealt mainly with social instability (Daniel, You’re Still a Child) - is still impregnated with a finely honed poeticism among often enigmatic lyrics. This poeticism is reinforced by the ethereal music which verges sometime on dreamlike. David Bowie’s dizzying space scenes in Be an Astronaut and the intro to The Key to Life on Earth immediately come to mind. To create this unique colour, Declan McKenna integrated his pop-rock roots with electronic elements (such as the vocoder on Rapture), but also piano glam-rock, xylophone and pizzicati strings. Finally, one can note his keen sense for a catchy pop melody and sophisticated harmonies. In short, all the elements are reunited to confirm that the young Declan McKenna is to be a future giant in British pop. © Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz

Britpop in 10 Albums

“If punk was about getting rid of hippies, then I'm getting rid of grunge.” It was with this sentence from Damon Albarn in 1993 that England invaded the stage previously dominated by Nirvana and Seattle grunge. Britpop is deeply linked to politics and local identity and emerged just as Tony Blair and New Labour were entering the scene. English romanticism was once again becoming attractive compared to the American identity, which was considered too hollow in the UK. Make way for “Cool Britannia”.

Discover the world of Norah Jones in 10 songs.

Kraftwerk, 50 Years Ahead of Their Time

Kraftwerk, the most influential electro group in history, founded by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider, who died of cancer on May 6, 2020, have always been ahead of their time. Ahead of technology, composition and stage performance, the Germans proved to the public that robots were also capable of emotion and paved the way for techno, new wave and even hip-hop.
