On latest track 'The Memory Chaser', buzzy indie band The Covasettes take an honest look at a relationship in denial.
Cementing their name as one of the UK’s most exciting rising new indie-pop bands, The Covasettes are back with another ear-worm single, ‘The Memory Chaser’. Following a summer of playing shows and festivals, including Y Not, Tramlines and Truck, the four-piece are back in release mode gearing up to heir forthcoming EP, ‘What’s Lost is Ours To Find’. Building on a trajectory that’s seen them amass over 7 million streams on Spotify and gain support from the likes of BBC Radio 1 and Spotify’s Indie List, the band’s next chapter is shaping up to be an exciting one.
With shimmery reverbs, layered instrumentals and infectious vocals, guitar-led ‘The Memory Chaser’ lands the perfect balance between euphoria and easy listening. Painting a story of losing yourself in a relationship and clinging on to the ghosts of better days, the track explores nostalgia and denial. Relatable and real, it captures a lonely state of mind most of us have avoided accepting before – in turn sparking connection in shared experience with their listeners.
“It’s heartbreaking and painfully honest but that’s how I like my lyrics to be,” the band say. “It’s a story about becoming lost in a relationship and chasing those feelings that have become lost over time and becoming dependent on nostalgia to justify why you’re still together.”
