“Blending both organic and electronic instrumentation with absolute ease, as well as those infectiously catchy lyrics and melodies floating about, it’s clear to us that dekleyn have well and truly found their groove.” – Acid Stag
“…Nostalgic without being morose, blending melancholy and hopefulness.”- EARMILK
“Just another reason to get excited about you two. y’all are producing such a ridiculous amount of songs and never skip on quality.” – Abby Butler, triple j
Returning with their first solo single of 2021, and following the release of their 2020 self-titled debut album, today Sydney duo Dekleyn serve up their infectious pop single ‘Over Again’. Steadily making a name for themselves since 2017, the talented duo have independently released three EPs, in addition to their debut album, and a series of standalone singles, together boasting over 7 million streams across platforms. Known for their smooth vocals with heavy-hitting choruses, combining electronic elements and synths with guitar leads and melodies, the pair have strived to broaden the horizons of conventional indie-pop.
Teaming up with Mark Zito (Fractures) on co-production duties, ‘Over Again’ delivers a truly international pop palette, with Justin Kleyn’s vocals taking centre stage, alongside refined guitar licks, and a driving beat that delivers an equally perfect soundtrack to a warm summer’s night, or cosy winter’s morning.
Taking the story of a love that wasn’t destined to be, Dekleyn create an uplifting take on the memories of a past relationship, sharing “’Over Again’ is a fun upbeat tune about the ups and downs of a relationship, the rekindling of an old fire, and the attempt to make it all work out. It’s about making the best of a bad situation and trying to be in the moment and take it all as it comes.”
Made up of Justin Kleyn and Matthew DeCelis, Dekleyn have seen a plethora of support from all corners of the globe, whilst amassing a solid fan base with their ever evolving indie pop soundscape. Already championed by both triple j and Unearthed, as well as tastemakers such as EARMILK, Acid Stag, Beautiful Buzzz, Atwood Magazine, Going Solo, and more, the duo are continuing to impress with their effervescent productions and take on songwriting. Whilst recently signing with Raida Artists for bookings, Dekleyn have been prolific in their touring, with support slots for the likes of Confidence Man, Fergus James, Fractures, CLYPSO and Angus Dawson, whilst selling out their ‘Thrive’ EP launch show in Sydney.
