“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.
