The Covasettes

The Covasettes

Nibley loves a great up and coming Indie band and this year we bring you The Covasettes. 

The indie-rock four-piece are from Manchester and reflect the cities strong musical heritage. They are made up of frontman Chris Buxton, lead guitarist Matt Hewlett, bassist Jamie McIntyre and drummer Matt Buckley.

They burst onto the scene in late 2017 with the release of their debut single, ‘This Feeling,’ which combines Buxton’s infectious vocals and lyrics with Hewlett’s world-ending riffs and the driving rhythm of McIntyre and Buckley.

In 2018 the boys released three more singles, 'Wondering Why', 'Top Drawer' and 'Wild'. Those releases proved that The Covasettes are ones to watch in the future, and helped them achieve a place on Spotify's 'Indie List' and 'Summer Indie' playlists, gaining over 200,000 streams in just a couple of months. Furthermore, 2018 saw The Covasettes play sold out shows in their hometown of Manchester as well as Derby, London and Leeds.

The quartet performed at Leeds Direct Arena for the Radio Academy after being crowned 'most exciting band' for 2018. Other notable performances include a sold out show at Leeds Stylus supporting The Sherlocks on their tour.

In early 2019 the boys played their first headline tour and released their fifth official single 'Like You'. This time round they have stepped it up a notch with their debut EP 'It's Always Sunny Above the Clouds,' which boasts four upbeat summer anthems.
