The Covasettes

From Manchester, The Covasettes are an indie-rock four-piece 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 perfectly encapsulates what this band is about. It combines Buxton’s infectious vocals and lyrics with Hewlett’s world-ending riffs and the driving rhythm of McIntyre and Buckley.

Since then, the band has achieved a place on Spotify’s Indie List and Summer Indie playlists, gaining over 300,000 streams in just a matter of months and 2018 saw The Covasettes play sold out shows in their home city as well as Derby, London and Leeds.

The Covasettes have undeniably earned themselves a firm place amongst Manchester’s lively music scene. You should certainly keep your eyes and ears on these lads!
