[“][W]hen I was 15 I made a rock band with two of my best friends – we sucked!” Cassyette laughs. “But from then I found a love for songwriting. I’ve always been musical – but it was a bit of a secret I could sing. I went to a catholic all girls school and they only wanted us to sing was hymns so I kept my mouth shut.” Inspired by the sounds and styles of 80s New Wave, the Chelmsford-born singer is part of a new era of retro-futuristic artists taking over the music scene right now: Maximalism is back in vogue. Hunger talks “punk AF” style icons, social media and synth sounds with the newbie to know now…
Hi Cassyette! You just released your debut single Push n Pull. Talk me through the track…
It’s inspired by an ex slightly – but mainly its about fighting with myself and learning to love my anxiety.
You have amassed a 31k Instagram following already. Does using social media ever make you anxious?
Yeah, it does sometimes but most of my followers seem to be a lot like me so It’s easier to be myself without worrying about people judging me.
What would you like to see more of online and what would you like to see less of?
I’d like to see less ex Love Islander’s online and more cute animal profiles.
