Manchester’s indie-pop quartet, The Covasettes, return with their buoyant and sparkling new single, Love In Polaroid. ​ Produced by the band’s bassist Jamie McIntyre and mixed by John Catlin (Inhaler, Jordan Mackampa, Talk Show), Love In Polaroid features a soundscape of clean guitar tones, warm bass lines, tight drums, and subtle synths.​ Chris Buxton’s understated, emotive lead vocals top the track, balancing pop elements with a fresh, summery indie feel reminiscent of early Bombay Bicycle Club and Two Door Cinema Club.

The band explains​: “It’s almost as if when the clocks go back, something within this band chimes and all of a sudden we come alive. We were born to make songs to drive along to on a hot summer day with your pals, and this song is ready to do all the above and more. It’s a really fun song about the initial stages of dating someone and getting into a relationship where everything feels so fresh, exciting, and almost dream-like. I tried to encapsulate that feeling in a sense where it’s like nothing can go wrong for you; that’s how I want people to feel when they listen to it.”

Later this year, The Covasettes will embark on their biggest tour yet, fueled by the success of their sold-out UK shows and over 12 million Spotify streams. They’ve consistently wowed festival audiences and achieved significant milestones in a few short years, including main stage performances at Truck Festival and sharing the stage with Two Door Cinema Club, The Vaccines, Sundara Karma, Giant Rooks, and The Sherlocks. Additionally, they’ve received national radio play on Radio 1, Radio X, and strong support from BBC Introducing and XS Manchester.
