Rising five-piece band, Sarpa Salpa, share their sophomore EP ‘A Feeling You Can’t Replace'.
Bringing together their three most recent singles along with two new tracks and even a remix by Vestian, ‘A Feeling You Can’t Replace’ is the second EP to come from the Northampton-based band.
Having already accrued support from the likes of Jack Saunders on BBC Radio 1, Radio X and BBC Introducing, the EP mixes 80s synth melodies with rock vocals and head-banging guitar riffs chords, designed with the indie dancefloor in mind.
The EP title itself, ‘A Feeling You Can’t Replace’, is a lyric taken from track 4 “As Good as It Gets”. Guitarist George Neath explains that the title “sums up how we were feeling when writing this EP. We miss live music and the ability to interact with both our fans and other musicians. We are so grateful that we were able to write over the Internet but it cannot replace the feeling of performing live music together, we feel like many can relate to this at the moment”.
Funded and supported by the PPL Momentum Fund, the EP was written and recorded during the ongoing pandemic, at a time when live music was on pauses so the band could focus on writing new music that pushed the boundaries of their songwriting. Beginning the recording process last March, the final tracks were finished in December just before the UK went into its third national lockdown. Now, the band are hoping to get back out on the road to play their new tunes to music-lovers.
The EP will see a limited edition Vinyl release on 25th June to tie in with the band’s hometown headline show at The Roadmender, Northampton.
