The cheery trio of Northerners known as Cassia have shared a brand new track, ‘Vitamins’, taken from their upcoming EP Magnifier.
A supremely funky slice of indie rock, ‘Vitamins’ is an ode to established routines, ones that become so intoxicating that they are impossible to live without.
“It’s about being in a long-distance relationship and the weirdly scheduled calls that become an unmissable fix, almost like a drug,” lead singer Rob Ellis explains. “The distance can bring up all kinds of uncertainties and fears but knowing the next call isn’t far away is like a vitamin boost that you need to get through the day, like a good Berocca.”
The ‘Vitamins’ video apparently contains Easter eggs for fans to spot. I am new to the Cassia experience, so if a more seasoned veteran of the band would like to fill in the blanks, please feel free to do so in the comments down below.
“We feel like we’ve had such a crazy journey over the past couple of years,” Ellis continues, now speaking about the song’s video. “The band has taken us to so many places, and through countless experiences with amazing people. We wanted to fill the video with the moments that we feel mark the different chapters best, from venues in Macclesfield where we played our first ever gigs, to memories on tour and also some of our favourite spots in Berlin (where we’re living now). We hope that all the people who have been with us along the way can take something from it.”
