The Covasettes Manchester We're an Indie/Alternative band from Manchester. The Covasettes sound is built on great vocals, surrounded by hypnotic guitar hooks, and driving rhythm, reminiscent of the great Manchester bands of the 90’s. I can see big things for The Covasettes. - Al Beeston (Astro Radio) The Covasettes are an Indie Rock quartet formed in the heart of Manchester’s student town, Fallowfield. Led by front-man Chris Buxton's effortlessly infectious lyrics, guitarist Matt Hewlett's anthemic Indie-Pop guitar hooks and glued together by bassist Jamie McIntyre and drummer Matt Buckley's insistently punchy grooves that you can't help but dance to, The Covasettes are an act that you just can't miss.
