The Covasettes ‘What’s Lost Is Not Ours to Find’ EP cover

It’s like if you take everything that we’ve done previously combine it together and then throw it out the window because we’ve taken a new approach it’s deeper it’s darker it’s more emotional and I think, that’s what makes this the best thing we’ve ever written.

Who are The Covasettes? | Story of an indie band that will become mainstream

The Covasettes are a four-piece indie-rock band from Manchester, UK:

  • Frontman and main songwriter Chris Buxton.
  • Guitarist Matt Hewlett.
  • Bassist Jamie McIntyre.
  • Drummer Matt Buckley.

The guys in The Covasettes met in college and started playing together. A story very similar to that of Coldplay of which they are big fans.

They started rehearsing together perfecting their signature indie sound, characterized by emotive lyrics, catchy melodies and fantastic guitar riffs.

They burst onto the UK music scene in late 2017 with the release of their debut single, ‘This Feeling‘.

  • In 2018 they would follow up with three more singles, ‘Wondering Why’, ‘Top Drawer’ and ‘Wild’.

These releases began to get them noticed by appearing on Spotify’s indie music charts ‘Indie List’ and ‘Summer Indie’, which saw them sell out concerts in Manchester, their hometown, and other venues such as London and Leeds.

In 2018 they would release their fifth single ‘Like This‘ being named ‘Most Exciting Band’ at the ARIA’s awards.

  • The Covasettes judge their songs by the reaction they get live. Depending on it they decide whether to release them or not.

In early 2019 they went on their first headlining tour and released their debut EP ‘It’s Always Sunny Above the Clouds, which features four upbeat summer anthems.

In 2020 they would go on to release several singles; Spin, Modern Rapunzel and Be Mine; dropping in 2021 their second EP ‘The Cova Guide to Sunset Vibes‘ 🏖️

  • In 2022 they continued to accumulate new fans thanks to great tracks: Big Dreamer, Plastic Gold and Wave.

To keep growing and surprising, the band decided to redefine their sound in 2023 by releasing their best work to date, the EP ‘What’s Lost Is Ours To Find‘.

When they started out they could never have predicted what was to come, but today The Covasettes boast over 8 million streams and huge success at UK festivals, having earned themselves a place in the bustling UK music scene.

Stay tuned because the band’s next chapter is shaping up to be an exciting one 🤩

The Covasettes 'Say What You See' Lyrics

And I’m giving up on the old times
Giving up on a good life
Lets say what we see

And I’m rising up
And I’m coming back from
Feeling like I’m never enough
It rubs off
And I’m so through with your point of view

So this time it’s real
And soon you will feel
A world where we can’t be found
It has to be said
We’re better of dead
Than being kept around

I’m giving up on the old times
Up on a good life
Let’s say what we see
Yeah
Giving up on a best friend
Let’s stop making amends
Let’s say what we see
Yeah
Let’s say what we see
Say what we see
(Yeah)

Time caught us up
Something it was only a matter of
And I’m done
Pretending I’m not hopelessly out of love

How’s it feel?
You pushed me until
You wore all my patience out
It hurts me to say
We both had our day
But now I’m getting out

I’m giving up on the old times
Up on a good life
Let’s say what we see
Yeah
Giving up on a best friend
Let’s stop making amends
Let’s say what we see
Yeah
Let’s say what we see
Say what we see
(Yeah)

I’m giving up on the old times
Giving up on a good life
Blame it on me
And I’m giving up on a best friend
Stop making amends
Let’s say what we see
Ahh

So say what you see
Say what you see
Ahh
Let’s say what we see
Say what we see
Ahh

The Covasettes 'Say What You See' Lyrics in Spanish

Y estoy renunciando a los viejos tiempos
Renunciando a una buena vida
Afrontemos la realidad

Y me estoy levantando
Y estoy cambiando de opinión de
Sentir que nunca soy suficiente
Se me pega
Y estoy tan harto de tu punto de vista

Así que esta vez es real
Y pronto sentirás
Un mundo donde no podemos ser encontrados
Hay que decirlo
Estamos mejor muertos
Que vivos

Estoy renunciando a los viejos tiempos
A una buena vida
Afrontemos la realidad

Renunciando a un mejor amigo
Dejemos de hacer las paces
Afrontemos la realidad

Afrontemos la realidad
Afrontemos la realidad
(Sí)

El tiempo nos atrapó
Algo que sólo era cuestión de
Y ya me cansé
Fingiendo que no estoy perdidamente desenamorado

¿Cómo se siente?
Me presionaste hasta que
Agotaste toda mi paciencia
Me duele decir
Ambos tuvimos nuestro momento
Pero ahora me voy

Estoy renunciando a los viejos tiempos
De una buena vida
Afrontemos la realidad

Renunciando a un mejor amigo
Dejemos de hacer las paces
Afrontemos la realidad

Afrontemos la realidad
Afrontemos la realidad
(Sí)

Estoy renunciando a los viejos tiempos
Renunciando a una buena vida
La culpa es mía
Y estoy renunciando a un mejor amigo
Deja de hacer las paces
Afrontemos la realidad
Ahh

Así que afrontemos la realidad
Afrontemos la realidad
Ahh
Afrontemos la realidad
Afrontemos la realidad
Ahh
