Cassia // Photoset

26th October | Thekla

Macclesfield’s Cassia could probably make you forget most of society’s ills: skinny polar bears surfing tiny ice floes, pea-brained, caterwauling MPs, that telly show where the groom has to organise the wedding. We love positivity, especially when it isn’t positivity about stuff that’s inherently horrible and doesn’t make us feel positive. Cassia have such feelgood value, that it would take an Olympic-standard curmudgeon to even try to knock their life-affirming vibe.

With tracks from 2019’s Replica to the fore, they held Thekla in thrall, ably backed up with the support of Alfie Neale.
