Western Sydney duo Dekleyn sign distro deal with Believe
Western Sydney electro-pop duo Dekleyn have signed a distribution deal with Believe, just as they deliver new single ‘Save My Name’.
Matthew DeCelis and Justin Kleyn described the partnership with Believe as “very exciting for us” and something they’d been looking forward to.
“Teaming up with Believe is a big step in the right direction for us and we hope to see the relationship flourish in 2022,” they said.
“The last few years have been very tough for the industry and has definitely taken its toll on our ability to create and play music.
“But as we move into the new year we hope that becoming a part of the Believe community will help bring some spark back!
“We’re very grateful for the opportunity to be working with them and hoping for a big 2022!”
Nate Nott, label manager at Believe Australia & New Zealand, added, “We are very excited to be working with Dekleyn as their distribution partner.
“Having been fans of the Sydney duo for the past few years we look forward to working together to bring their new songs to an expanding fanbase.”
DeCelis and Kleyn met on Facebook 12 years ago.
The two jammed together occasionally, and in 2017 started working together.
The name is derived from their family names but is pronounced ‘decline’.
Dekleyn generated seven million streams from three EPs and a self-titled debut album in 2020.
Last year they generated 2.7 million plays on Spotify, with 673,800 listeners in 144 countries.
Along with the Believe deal, Dekleyn also assigned bookings to Raida Artists, repped by Vienna Bradley and Jeremy Fox.
The act is managed by Chris Salce at Willow Artists.
‘Save My Name’, co-produced with Fractures, is about two people meeting up for the first time and realising there is a spark.
“The chorus came together really quickly, we recall throwing it on at the end of a session and the chorus melody just exploded out instantly!
“From there we knew we were onto something great and prioritized completing it as our next project.”
