Decade are back with new album, 'Pleasantries'. It's more than pleasant, and takes their music to another level from their debut album in 2014, 'Good Luck'.

Decade have done extremely well to create a new sound which isn't really anywhere else, by combining a rage of sounds which are already in the mainstream. If you're a fan of anything from Turnover to Moose Blood to A Day to Remember to Blur, and even Nirvana - give this album listen.

The album starts with a beautiful riff, and it makes you feel like it's summer. Then, Turnover-esque vocals kick in and you're daydreaming. Shortly after, you're hit with a heavier chorus which knocks you back to reality. You're a minute-and-a-half into opening track, 'Human Being', and already hooked.

The vocals are airy but powerful all the way through the album, drums are simple but effective, and guitars do well playing both delicately and powerfully. There's no doubt that the band are talented musicians in their musical and lyrical writing. 'Turn Off Your TV' particularly stands out as a song about our consumption of social media, hidden underneath catchy riffs, and a chorus that'll have you wanting to move.
