Cassia has found moderate success as of late, with releases such as their EP ‘Powerlines’, and singles ‘Hurt’ and ‘Gotta Get Through Till Monday’. After recently relocating to Berlin in order to produce their own music, the macclesfield-born band Cassia are back, this time with a brand new single called Right There.
The band, whose track premiered on Annie Mac’s Radio One show, talked extensively about the new record, stating that –
“Right There’ came from quite a difficult place and was originally written as a slower piano song, with the words coming out almost as if I was talking. It’s about a very specific feeling, one of loneliness, and picking things apart – a vicious cycle, really.”
Reminiscent of artists like George Ezra and the Wallows, their sound is soulful, meaningful, and alternative enough to stand out. To reinforce this point, the band self describes themselves as having a ‘jingly pop-rock sound’ which is inspired and shaped by their time in South-Africa.
It was in here that Cassia used the landscape and culture of the land to create and influence their sound. A perfect combination of external influences that play with genre boundaries, and push what we know as pop today.
Cassia looks set to take off into superstardom any second now, and just one look at their streaming numbers and social media is enough to tell you that they are beloved by their fans, both new and dedicated alike. So don’t miss out, don’t be left in the dark, and don’t wait until they become the global mega stars they’re destined to be. Listen to Right There by Cassia, out now!
