Sarpa Salpa followed up their debut EP ‘Say Something’ with the release of their disco-tinged single ‘Forwards Backwards’ in May. This continued their run of radio success with extensive support from BBC Introducing, Radio X, 6 Music as well as particular support from BBC Radio 1’s Jack Saunders who crowned the track his Tune of the Week in June and consistently played the band for 12 weeks running.

This national radio exposure attracted the attention of the Student Radio Association who added the track to their curated Spotify “Student’s Union” & Deezer “Campus Sounds” playlists in addition to their official playlist for over 100 University radio stations around the UK.

Looking forward, the time away from live shows has given Sarpa Salpa the perfect opportunity to focus on developing the wealth of material written over the past couple of years. During lockdown the band have written some of their best music yet which once recorded in the studio will join “Stick To What You Know” and “Forwards Backwards” on their sophomore EP due for release in early 2021.

"Songwriting capabilities well beyond their years" - Jack Saunders (BBC Radio 1 - TOTW) "Refreshing British pop for the next generation" - Chris Hawkins (BBC 6 Music) "A stadium sound in your local venue" Gordon Smart (Radio X) "Turbo-charged, disco-tinged with pop sensibilities" - Mix It All Up "Festive and explosive atmosphere" - Indie Music Center

Athena
Artistically independent and in-control of every aspect of the songs she writes, Athena is an artist with a clear statement and vision that has already moved many. Based in the Bath and Bristol area, Athena has been creativing dark alt-pop since 2020. Inspired by those of Eden, Suga and Labrinth, her sound is both intimate and massive, delicate and explosive, taking the heartaches we all feel and projecting them back out as if to fill a cinema screen.
