Cassie and the Cassettes

At first Cassie and the Cassettes seem like a band focused on plinking keyboards and whimsical vocals. Looking a bit further brings out lovely lyrics and an upbeat message which is tinged with a touch of melancholy ("Today was fine/ But I'm not ok"). The perfect songs to sit back, close your eyes and let the music do its magic. A flutter of tounge-in-cheek graces "But I suprise you / When I say I don't like you" as the keys and guitars lull the listener into a vocal-focused message before launching back into the chourus. It's really like Kate Nash if she had talent and better lyrics than her face full of freckles or like Soko without the French-tinged accent.
"Two of a Kind" is up-tempo'ed and still lovely! It swoops and soars; perfect summer pop; tender lyrics and hearfelt vocals. Based in London so the vocals do at times have a cockney tinge but thankfully not full blown "orite guv'na, apples'n'pairs, I'm-a-bleedin'-cockney" stuff! I swear you'll be humming to these songs in you sleep and my only grumble is that there isn't more music to be heard as of yet!

Subtle Belle and Seb tones whisper through the songs as the distinctive keyboards and skittering drum beats creates magical undertones. It seems simplistic yet skill and substance surround the band and as they themselves pledge "the band are now ready to fight injustice and bands full of pale Smiths obssesives, invading public eardrums along the way…"

Super!
