CASSETTE TAPES, “Forgiveness”
“Forgiveness” by Cassette Tapes can be called more of a celebration of looking for forgiveness for something for all the right reasons rather than pining away and wallowing in sorrow. I could be wrong, but this doesn’t sound like the aftermath of an end of a relationship. As such the new San Francisco duo of Jackson and Parker have taken some cues from fellow sterling Californian duos like RKCB and Opia, adding a delightful soulful edge to their indie pop. I’m not sure who sings but the vocal could not be more spot-on, and it’s what attracts you to the story, which is over quickly in a matter of two and a half minutes. “Forgiveness” is a great introduction to Cassette Tapes and only wants to make you hear more from them.
