EP Review: Cassia – Powerlines

Do you need some good new tunes, that give you the feeling of a warm summer breeze? The ‘Powerlines’ EP by indie-pop band Cassia will definitely put your mind at ease in times of another lockdown.

Same-titled as the EP, first song ‘Powerlines’ takes us on a groovy ride. Their official music video for‚ ‘Powerlines’ captures the careless feeling just right. In the video you see Rob Ellis (vocals, guitar), Jacob Leff (drums) and Lou Cotterill (bass) driving around in a car jamming to good music. Isn’t this the feeling we’re all craving right now?

The second track on this EP is called ‘Do Right’ and contains lots of positive and good vibes. “Do right and let the rest follow / for me, for you, for our hope”, sings lead vocalist Rob Ellis.This is one of many lines in this song that leaves you with a brighter mindset.

The EP also includes their single ‘Don’t Make a Scene’ and a very catchy song called ‘Drifting’, written between Cape Town and Berlin mid-lockdown. ‘Don’t Make a Scene’ even premiered on the Radio 1 Annie Mac Powerdown-Playlist-Show as “Hottest Record” and received almost two million streams. This song catches a feeling, that probably every one of us is familiar with. It’s about striving for your passions and goals and the pressure that comes with it.

The Manchester-based band created a total of four songs and 13 minutes full of joyful energy with an upbeat, but relaxed use of guitar, bass and drums. All of their songs deliver powerful and encouraging messages, which we are eager to hear more of. You’ll find yourself singing along and bopping your head immediately, while getting lost in the groovy rhythm that Cassia creates in each of these tracks.
