Welcome to the "Daily Song Drop": theguysfrom.com's song of the day feature where our resident indie music writer and former DJ Shaun Cordingley features a song every weekday that he feels you need to hear.
Sink - Cassia
I know that summer feels over, but technically we still have a few days left (plus, as of when I am writing this, it is currently +32*C where I am...ugh), so I figure that it is an excellent day for Manchester indie rock trio Cassia's latest single "Sink".
Check the track out below:
The lads describe themselves on SoundCloud as: "We make summer music in Manchester." and quite frankly there is no real better way to describe what it is that they do, especially in "Sink". This track is a wonderfully executed, bright, and happy piece of indie alt-rock that has such a summer vibe that I wish I had heard it earlier, so I had more summer to enjoy it in. It's a very standard rock trio setup: guitar, bass, and drums, and yet all three execute so well, that the sum of the parts makes something very special.
"Sink" was featured on BBC Introducing just a couple of weeks ago, and Cassia is starting to get a fair amount of buzz, so hopefully that means we are going to continue getting more great music from them soon, but if you are looking for more, be sure to check out their other singles, with my personal favourite being "100 Times Over".
The August 2017 DSD Playlist is here! This month we are only missing one (1) track, from AL-X the Great, as it is not available...anywhere other than where I put it in here, but it is tradition that we are missing something every month. Also, here is the link to the August '17 Spotify List because....we are on Spotify!
If you're looking for any of our past playlists, be sure to check out a Friday DSD feature, or serach for TGF on either Apple Music or Spotify!
See you tomorrow for our next Daily Song Drop!
The Guys From do not hold the rights to any "Daily Song Drop" songs, it is more our hope to expose our readers to new and different music that we are enjoying, or re-expose them to artists they may have forgotten about.
Above the description of the song will be the song name, followed by the artists' name linked to their website, so you can fall down the rabbit hole, finding and supporting what you dig
