Dutch Uncles share new single ‘Decided Knowledge’ – listen

The Manchester band will release their third album 'O Shudder' in February

Dutch Uncles have shared their new single ‘Decided Knowledge’.

Click below to listen to the track, which features on their new album ‘O Shudder’. The Manchester band will release the album on February 23 via Memphis Industries and follow the release with the biggest headline dates of their career.


Speaking about the track, the band’s frontman Duncan Wallis has commented: “The lyrics came as a reaction to failing very miserably at a job interview. It was a council job at a local arts centre. I thought personal experience would account for something, but it really didn’t, so the melodramatic tone of the words reflect a) how very assuming I was; and, b) how very unsuitable for the job I was in the first place.”

‘O Shudder’ is Dutch Uncles third album to date and the follow up to their 2013 release ‘Out Of Touch, In The Wild’. Speaking to NME about the album, Robin Richards of the band said: “We let the songs dictate the sound a bit more this time. But it’s been quite a natural progression for us. We could’ve gone down a completely different route again with this record, but it seemed like we’d found something to build on with ‘Out Of Touch’. The album also features Liverpool band Stealing Sheep on ‘Be Right Back’.

The ‘O Shudder’ tracklisting is as follows:

‘Decided Knowledge’
‘I Should Have Read’
‘In n Out’
‘Given Thing’
‘Don’t Sit Back (Frankie Said)’
‘Tidal Weight’
‘Be Right Back’
