With Dot To Dot almost a month away and the sun finally shining, it seems no better time than to get the tunes on.
Introducing the return of D2D Mixtapes, a series where you get to know the bands on this years line up as they handpick a selection of tracks and talk us through their meaning. First up we have indie pop band Cassia, whose new track ‘Motions’ brings you all the wavy, bright, summer vibes you need! Delve in to their picks below.
THE MOST RECENT TRACK YOU RELEASED
Motions is the first Single from our new album “Why You Lacking Energy?“. It’s a high energy tune and it unravels the first chapter of a story we’ve built around the album!
A SONG THAT INSPIRED YOU TO BECOME AN ARTIST
I heard that and thought fuck me that sounds insanely good I wanna play guitar like that someday!
A SONG THAT GIVES YOU NOSTALGIA
When I was at school The Wombats were everywhere. They were always on at house party’s and stuff, proper big tunes!
A SONG FROM THE BEST ARTIST YOU’VE SEEN LIVE
I remember seeing them at Leeds fest and they just grabbed me straight away they sounded so unique and when they played A-Punk it just went off!
A SONG THAT WOULD BE THE SOUNDTRACK TO A SERIES ABOUT YOUR LIFE
At the moment it kinda sounds fitting to the life I’m currently leading. lol
A SONG YOU WISH YOU HAD WRITTEN YOURSELF
We played this tune at our leavers assembly and I remember when learning it thinking this riff is such a vibe. Love the fact that it sounds super carefree.
A SONG THAT GETS YOU IN THE MOOD FOR SUMMER
This is an absolute banger and will always be. Makes me want to sit in the sun and have a beer.
A SONG FROM THE ARTIST YOU ARE MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO CHECKING OUT AT D2D
Managed to catch a bit of his set at Neighbourhood Festival last year and can’t wait to check out a full album set from him.
YOUR ABSOLUTE GUILTY PLEASURE
This is actually one of my most favourite tunes haha. It’s a banger and a half!
Big thanks to CASSIA for taking part, you can listen to their playlist in full here.
