** PREMIERE ** SASS - Cupid
Words: Ellie Ward
Little Indie featured alt-pop five-piece SASS last May with 'Island For Two', their slow-burning four-and-a-half-minutes-plus single release.
Fast forward to 2017 and the former Birmingham lads, now based in North London, shoot a new single in the form of 'Cupid', which we are proud to premiere here.
Out today (March 24), 'Cupid' draws on the band's combination of woozy electronic drums interspersed with tropical guitar, heavy bass and synth, topped off with a layer of R&B vocals - just about has it all, really.
"I wrote the lyrics when I was stuck in a bit of a limbo, which is pretty common when you're dating in London," shares vocalist Ryan Ward. "I feel like, if you ask anyone who is dating here, they feel like they are coming across as too keen or as if they have bigger fish to fry. I think we are all guilty to playing both of those roles, so it's a reflection on that."
Take a listen below.
SASS are: Ryan Ward - vocals, Craig Griffiths - guitar, Nicky Preston - synth, keys, Jack Bedford - bass, Fraser Knott - drums.
