Alt-pop band Sarpa Salpa have been labelled as a “young Catfish & the Bottlemen” by Steve Lamacq (BBC 6 Music). What a great honour! Listening to their new single called ‘Lost Time’ I can see why. In January they released their debut EP called ‘Say Something’ and this was played on radio stations in the UK. ‘Lost Time’ stood out for me from the scores of submissions due to its high energy, excellent vocal sound and meaningful lyrics. All the things that I love in a song, and I adore this one! I predict that Sarpa Salpa has what it takes to hit the big time, even more so when I read some reviews of their live shows. With many Festivals and gigs booked for this year already 2020 (COR VID 19 permitting) is going to be a great year for Sarpa Salpa. If you, like me are in isolation right now or even if you are not, check out their new single here and more below. Check them out on Facebook for more info.
As part of the run of shows there is also a massive announcement incoming on the 31st March so well worth tuning into the band socials to see what happens on this date!
