Attended by about 50 people in the rain, the show was the singer’s first UK gig in over a year, and follows his recent comeback with politically charged new single ‘British Bombs’.

On my way home @DeclanMcKenna was playing his first UK gig “since last summer” on Pall Mall as part of #ExtinctionRebellion

“No idea how we’re doing this… but we love a bit of it”

Essentially Barlow at the jubilee with less gold, a bit more tarpaulin and a political message.

Extinction Rebellion protests are expected to carry on throughout the week and beyond, and follow last month’s Global Climate Strike.

NME‘s El Hunt headed down to last month’s strike to speak to protesters. “Greta Thunberg is why we’re all here,” one told NME. “Friday strikes wouldn’t be a thing, if it wasn’t for her. What she’s doing is incredible. She doesn’t take anyone’s violence, ableism, ageism or sexism. She’s not giving a shit about it.”

that was easily one of the most fun sets i’ve ever played thank you for showing up on an hours notice lmao extinction rebellion thank you so much xxxx

Declan McKenna released his debut album ‘What Do You Think About The Car?’ in 2017, and told NME about the motives for the political comeback single ‘British Bombs’ upon its release.

“’British Bombs’ is a tune I wrote about the hypocrisy of the British arms trade and the weapons convention in London,” he said.

“I think too often it’s implied that matters in the world are too complex to not end up with war, or to not possess and sell weapons, and I just think it is pure bullshit.”
