To celebrate the album’s release the LA-based band have confirmed two shows in the NYC area. Decorations will be playing at Pianos on June 21 (8pm) and the following night, June 22, at Brooklyn‘s Shea Stadium (9:30pm).
Decorations vocalist and jack-of-all-trades Devon Geyer started writing the tracks that led to the formation of the band after finding himself living alone and brokenhearted in Silverlake sans car, girl, and gig. Devon decided to translate that frustration into sun-kissed, slick, and sharp anthems that everybody could dance their troubles away too like “New wave without all the sadness.” He emerged with a millennial mash of Elvis Costello’s romanticism, The Who’s youth in revolt, and just a pinch of indie adventurousness.
The songs captured a spirit that spoke not only to his peers, but to Frenchkiss Records. Inking a deal with the label, he released his Girls EP in late 2015 while simultaneously putting the finishing touches on Have Fun. Devon wrote, produced, and played almost every instrument on the album with engineering courtesy of Mike Malchicoff and Burleigh Drummond on the drums.
Ultimately, Decorations create a soundtrack for a truly universal story.
“I’d love for this be an ‘anytime album’ for people,” he concludes. “They can play it when they’re down, when they’re up, when they’re driving, or when they’re dancing.”
Decorations have previously shared track, “At Your Leisure” and Stereogum said “(‘At Your Leisure’) certainly doesn’t disappoint; the opening chords immediately encourages listeners to embrace the album’s title” Earlier the band shared the video for their single “Girls”:
