Cassia brings an infectious energy to any room, their natural magnetism radiating as brightly as their sun-soaked sound. Clash aptly described it as "transforming even the gloomiest days into a joyous carnival." Fusing indie-pop roots with main stage-worthy vocals and intricately woven guitar work, Cassia crafts a euphoric resonance that uplifts from the very first note. As Gigwise puts it, their music is a testament to a band with a mission to spread positivity.
In April 2019, Cassia unveiled their debut album, 'Replica'. Among its standout tracks is '100 Times Over', a gem penned by Rob at the tender age of 17 in his school's music studio. "I recall goofing off in the studio with my pals, completely neglecting any math homework," Rob reminisces with a chuckle. "After a flurry of jamming and experimentation, '100 Times Over' emerged, and it continues to be one of our most cherished songs, beloved by our fans."
These songs swiftly forged a deep connection with audiences, leading to sold-out headline shows across the UK and Europe. From a triumphant hometown performance at Manchester's O2 Ritz to a memorable night at London's Scala, Cassia's devoted following flourished through the time-honored tradition of relentless touring.
Their dynamic live performances garnered them a nomination for Best Live Act at the Association of Independent Music Awards, sharing the spotlight with esteemed acts like Idles and DMA's. Cassia's jam-packed 2019 tour schedule encompassed over 80 shows and 35 festival appearances, including prestigious events like TRNSMT, Reading, and Kendal Calling. Blanketing nearly every corner of the UK with consistently explosive shows, they forged an indelible fusion of charm and musical prowess, solidifying their distinctive sound. Now, gracing some of Europe's grandest stages has become par for the course for this exceptional band.
