From her debut single drop Jean in 2019, Chelmsford singer songwriter Cassyette has became one of the most exciting new artists in the alt scene at the moment – she has been labelled as not only one of London’s most relevant new artists, but a consummate beat maker and songwriter.
From her spectacular festival debut at Download Pilot in 2021, she has risen to be tipped for main stages across the festival circuit – and I for one can back up any praise sent her way. An explosive curtain raiser at Slam Dunk Festival and a killer second appearance at Donnington Park for the real deal Download this year just shows the intensity and passion she brings to her live shows. Not only were there massive festival appearances, but she made a very special support slot with quite a well know band, My Chemical Romance at their UK return in MK Bowl.
From the fields to the venues, in September, Cassy brings her Sad Girl Summer tour to small intimate venues across the UK – the opening night see’s her roll in to Glasgow for a what’s certain to be huge night in the cities best and most iconic rock club – The Cathouse
It’s not the first time Glasgow has had the honour of hosting the Londoner – following her triumph at Download Pilot, Cassy headlined her first Glasgow show in its famous King Tuts Wah Wah Hut on the Mayhem Tour before taking to the stage to join Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes in the Barrowlands to not only support but to perform single Off With His Head.
The reaction to latest single Sad Girl Summer has been pretty special – the energetic emo summer anthem is described as a big f*** you anthem about being cheated on, its a proper rager in the chorus. The summer banger saw it’s way into several alt and rock playlists across Spotify. With over 600,000 listens on Spotify, it’s safe to say its a big hitter.
In more recent times her social actions have been a joy to watch, from collab with fans to extremely special covers of Pierce The Veils King For a Day and I’m Not Okay by My Chemical Romance to more pop based like Katy Perry’s classic Firework – we were also treated to a special guest appearance at Maida Vale Studios that saw her cover a certain Harry Styles and his song As It Was.
As the Sad Girl Summer Tour edges ever closer, I for one have a huge buzz for what’s to come not only on the tour but the future of Cassyette. The raw talent and sheer excitement she brings to her live performances can be sure to turn even the biggest venues into a special show. Joining the soon to be sold out tour, is another great London talent – Kid Bookie brings his incredible mixture of rap, hip-hop and guitar based music to the party – very well respected in music, its saw him collab with the likes Tech N9ne and Slipknot’s Corey Taylor & Sid Wilson.
I really can’t shout from the rooftops enough for what’s to come from Cassyette, from Jean, to Dear Goth, bangers in between and Sad Girl Summer – we really do have something special already and its only going to get bigger by the month. Catch Cassyette on her Sad Girl Summer Tour as above kicking off things in Glasgow before heading down south to tear it up in Cardiff, Sheffield, Manchester, Southampton and finally her biggest headline show in London’s Islington O2 Academy.
Trust me, you won’t regret it, its a special kind of Mayhem.
