There is a good chance you have already heard ‘Sarpa Salpa’ before, they have already been picked up by a number of national radio stations, the likes of BBC 6 Music and BBC Radio one to mention a few and recently collecting the accolade of Next Wave from Jack Saunders of the BBC Radio One indie show.
Most of this attention was grabbed when Sarpa Salpa threw out their debut EP ‘Say Something’ in late 2019, this new single ‘Forward/Backwards’ is the next stage and evolution of this band’s sound, with an added member in the form of Meg making them a 5 piece band. Sarpa Salpa have been busy touring the UK and selling out T-Shirts at the beginning of the tour as their fan base grows at a good rate of knots.
Meg on the keys makes a massive impression in ‘Forward/Backwards’, with a flair of a new layer which has allowed the band to have a fuller richer sound. The track is a purely indulgent indie dance record that is hard not to stop your head bobbing to. ‘Sarpa Salpa’ have quickly developed into a polished band with free flowing indie vibes and catchy lyrics added to the smooth vocals. No wonder they are making waves in the national indie music scene, this record will find a home on the radio and the dancefloor in equal measures!
