Combining a rich musicality with continent-spanning influences, Cassia have made their mark with their own brand of calypso-flavoured tropi-pop, resulting in a deft balance of the quintessentially British, and the unequivocally exotic. Macclesfield might not be the first place you think of when you hear the sun-soaked grooves of the three-piece, but that’s exactly where the trio hail from.The band’s latest single, Weekender, sees the trio eschewing the usual elation brought on by the end of the working week, painting instead pictures of high spirits crushed by the act of being strung along. Though despondency runs riot through the narrative, such feelings are easily offset by the band’s trademark energy and ardour; a facet of the band palpable in Weekender’s delivery.Despite their relatively short space of time together, the chemistry and musicality Cassia exhibit is nothing short of impressive, and as such has seen the trio already support a plethora of up and coming acts, includingLisbonand Girl Friend. Shows which have resulted in the band appearing at festivals such as Brownstock, Folk On the Lawn, as well as Y-Not Festival for two years running; their first appearance going down so well they were asked back again the following year.
