Why do we like this?
Michael Cassidy, signed with D Set Records in Glasgow, has won over our ears with "Battleships." The single was released not too long ago, and has been accumulating some buzz, which initially emerged with his release of the Michael Cassidy EP about seven months back.

This Paisley-based singer/songwriter is best described as a master of combining alternative folk with melodic pop elements, creatively organizing his variety of influences like Richard Thompson, Radiohead, and Rufus Wainwright. "Battleships" embodies all of this and more by pulling on our heart strings with each note hit. His style is simplistic, orchestral, and overwhelmingly emotional yet uplifting. Sounds promising, right?

I had the pleasure of hanging out with Cassidy this past weekend and hearing "Battleships" live, and can't begin to explain how much of a pleasure it was. Once you're able to digest how great this track is, I encourage you to venture into his older releases. Thank me later!
