Northampton indie-popsters Sarpa Salpa have had something of a result: they’ve been chosen for the Radio 1 ‘Tune Of The Week’ slot!
Latest single ‘Casanova’ was picked out by BBC Introducing and put forward for rotation on the flagship BBC station. Starting this Saturday, March 16th, ‘Casanova’ will be played on at least one show every day for seven days. Radio 1 has over 9 million listeners each week.
“Honestly it’s crazy!”, reacted Bassist Ethan Whitby. “It came as a big surprise to us and it still hasn’t fully sunk in. Getting Radio 1 airplay means so much as it will help get our music to a whole new audience. We’ve put in a lot of hours over the last few years, so for this to happen makes feel even more worthwhile!”
Since 2016 Sarpa Salpa have been gigging regularly in the UK and have built an excellent reputation. ‘Casanova’ was preceded by singles ‘Smith’ and ‘She Never Lies’. The quartet play London’s Camden Assembly on April 15th. There is another Northampton show to be announced soon; check their social media for all their latest news.
