Steady Decline started when Oscar & Jack were both gigging as separate acoustic acts for years.
Oscar's old band All It's Worth had just broken up, but songs were still pouring out of him so he booked some studio time and asked Jack if he wanted to come in and work on some new music.
Shortly after they joined forces and recorded their first EP 'Coping Mechanism' and began gigging in 2017. Over the next two years they would regularly play Dublin, Galway & Belfast and share the stage with acts like Forever Came Calling, In Her Own Words & Kurt Travis.
In 2018 they released a split EP with Galway punk band Old Bean and toured Ireland & UK with this release playing with Brightr & h_ngm_n
After some time off during the pandemic they started demoing in our home studios and began working with Ciaran Nevin (Producer/Light Grey) and are now back with plans to gig and release music regularly
Their first release back in 2022 was the aggressively catchy pop punk banger 'Start Over' which is a prime example of what Steady Decline are all about, fast music, dual vocals, catchy riffs and songs that will get stuck in your head for weeks.
Their second single 'Erase Me' came out on August 31st, it's an emotionally charged song about being haunted by and trying to move on from a toxic relationship. www.steadydecline.ie
