Sarpa Salpa have kicked off this year with the release of their sophomore EP ‘A Feeling You Can’t Replace’, tying together their three most recent singles along with two new tracks and a remix released on Friday 2nd April 2021 building on their previous successes and gaining support from Jack Saunders on BBC Radio 1.
The 6 track EP, written and recorded during the ongoing pandemic posed a new challenge for Sarpa Salpa. No longer being able to perform live gigs, the band focused on writing new songs that pushed the boundaries of their song-writing. Communicating online meant they could still collaborate and generate fresh ideas, coming together to record and perfect each song in the studio.
The title of the EP ‘A Feeling You Can’t Replace’ is a lyric taken from track 4 ‘As Good as It Gets’. Guitarist George Neath goes on to say: “The title ‘A Feeling You Can’t Replace’ sums up how we were feeling when writing this EP. We miss live music and the ability to interact with both our fans and other musicians. We are so grateful that we were able to write over the Internet but it cannot replace the feeling of performing live music together, we feel like many can relate to this at the moment.”
"A very exciting prospect for the future, these guys could be your new favourite band - Jack Saunders - BBC Radio 1
“Refreshing British pop for the next generation” - Chris Hawkins – BBC 6 Music
“A stadium sound in your local venue” - Gordon Smart – Radio X
“Flooded with nostalgic synths, a grooving bass-line and nuanced guitar, the band have woven together an irresistible tapestry of upbeat alt-pop” - Music Crowns.
"One of the most creative and memorable emerging bands in the UK right now" - CLOUT.
This tour and the release of the new EP has been made possible by the PPL Momentum Music Fund supported by the PRS Foundation, PPL, Arts Council of Northern Ireland, Invest NI, Creative Wales and Spotify UK.
