Cassyette has just dropped her electrifying new emo-punk banger ‘Sad Girl Summer’, as well as two surprising bonus tracks!

The electropop/rock artist from Chelmsford, Essex previously released the anthemic banger ‘Mayhem’ earlier this year, but is most definitely back with a vengeance with her brand new single.

Cassyette explains that ‘Sad Girl Summer’ is about ‘being cheated on. It’s a ‘fuck you’ song and I want people to feel empowered by it. Anyone that’s ever been cheated on will understand that hurt. It’s a proper rager in the chorus. I was so fed up at the time I wrote this, and I was so over crying over them. I wrote it over two days and on the first day I felt so depressed, and by the second day I wanted to turn the song around and reclaim the power.’

In addition to ‘Sad Girl Summer’, Cassyette has also dropped two more songs, which is a complete surprise! An acoustic version of her track ‘Mayhem‘ has been released, as well as ‘Dead Roses‘.

Speaking about ‘Dead Roses’, Cassyette continues; ‘I wrote ‘Dead Roses’ the day after I wrote ‘Mayhem’. I realised the relationship I was in at the time was over and wasn’t what it once was before. The line ‘we’re sleeping on dead roses’ was a metaphor for that and the thorns were the pain I felt realising we had fallen out of love.’

She also spoke about why she opted to release three songs at once, as well as deciding to change her direction musically; ‘I absolutely love these songs, so much so that I was really torn between putting out something that’s more pop-punk like Sad Girl Summer or a real heavy track like Dead Roses. In the end I thought, Why not just give my fans both and a stripped back version of Mayhem?’

Following Cassyette’s time supporting My Chemical Romance on one of their MK dates, she is also set to play a handful of festival shows this summer, including Download Festival, Slam Dunk Festival and 2000 Trees.
