In a nutshellJuxtaposing atmospheric orchestral pop with an adventurous spirit of sonic experimentation, Decomposing In Paris have just released their second DIY EP, ‘Cocoon’. Fronted by the quirky and winged Becca Hopkins (who possibly believes she is an actual fairy), this Belfast trio has been compared by audiences to Kate Bush, Bjork, Muse, and Regina Spektor... but this is one rabbit-hole unlike any other. Essential to the signature sound are scuba-diving composer and classical pianist Aoife Lynch plus the uncooperative guitarist and producer Garvin Clements whose arrangements have wooed audiences as part of BBC Introducing’s In Session, GiftedLive.com, and a self-organized US Tour.

Cocoon EP |
On the 4th of April Decomposing In Paris released their second EP "Cocoon" and celebrated its release by throwing a fundraiser for anti-human trafficking charity "Hope For Justice". Joined on the night by Alana Henderson and Gemma Wilson of "No More Traffik", this was a wonderful night of good music in aid of a wonderful cause.
International Women's Day
Decomposing In Paris returned to the stage for the first time since 2013's "Falling Into The New World" tour with a night of tribute to Kate Bush on International Women's Day. Alongside such artists as Suzanne Savage and Fiona O'Kane, the band's covers of "Under Ice" and "This Woman's Work" were well received before taking the audience on a journey with a few songs of their own.
