“One of the most exciting bands to come out of area in years. Their music does things to me I can't explain." - Rob Adcock, BBC Introducing
Cassia absorb a vast array of influences; from the lyrics of Talking Heads, to the rhythm of
Afrobeat masters Fela Kuti , Ebo Taylor and Tony Allen , to a ska playlist curated by Rob's uncle. The result is a joyful, instantly danceable indie pop, reminiscent of Vampire Weekend and early Foals.
The Northern trio have built a cult following in the last few years, playing countless headline shows to sold out crowds across the UK and Europe. With just a handful of tracks released so far, the band have already amassed a staggering 3 million Spotify streams based purely on word of mouth and a stellar reputation across the live circuit, garnering early support from the likes of BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens and Greg James. Autumn will see the three-piece play some of the biggest headline shows of their
career so far, including dates at The Garage, London and the 1,500 capacity O2 Ritz, Manchester.
Expect more new music from Cassia in the coming months…
