Band left ‘overwhelmed’ with support following release of debut album

by Tom Martin (July 2020)

A CROSBY band who dream of having a sell-out tour and performing around the world have released their debut album.

Decay, who describe themselves as a “melodic post-hardcore band”, is made up of singer Danny Reposar, guitarist Nathan Peloe, bassist Matthew Pickford and drummer Toby Hacking.

The musicians, all aged in their early 20s, followed up their first single ‘Comfortable’ in May by releasing the album Staring at the Sun on July 10.

Nathan told the Champion: “It’s been a bit mad so far. The reception we’ve had has been incredible and overwhelming to be honest. We are so grateful. We always had a vision of where we wanted to go and so far so good.”

The band, who formed two and a half years ago, wrote their debut EP ‘Modern Conversation’, which tackles serious subjects such as alcoholism and grief, fuelled by the experiences of singer Danny.

In early 2019 they were signed to Birmingham-based record label Fox Records and began to record Staring at the Sun.

Nathan added: “We have gone from performing to a few friends to people paying to come and see us in these big venues. Modern Conversation definitely shaped our sound and guided us in the direction we wanted to go in. We’ve become almost like a family and everyone has an input which is great.”

After the coronavirus outbreak put live shows on hold, Decay are hoping to make up for lost time when they are able to start gigging again.

Nathan said: “Obviously everything has been cancelled which isn’t ideal but we have plans for the future. Our mentality is that we want to be touring around Europe and America one day and hope that people resonate with our music like we do.”

Staring at the Sun s now available to stream or buy.
