cua – ‘No Sequel’

cua – ‘No Sequel’

A talented trio of John Davidson, Shane Booth, and Ros O'Meara, cua are arguably one of the year’s best-kept secrets. Armed with a sound built from dynamic, contrasting instrumentation and vocal arrangements, the band have been carving out their own unique space in modern music, delivering a sound that is fresh, original, and instantly recognisable. While three albums to their name, cua have proved their combined talents time and time again, but with their new single, they’re taken things to a whole new level.

A track that has been described as a “solemn lament for the loss of good in exchange for perpetual progress”, ‘No Sequel’ is a gorgeous new piece from the band, capitalising on their textured sound and penchant for expansive folk styles, while also standing apart as something new and wonderfully original. Speaking about the new track, the band explained that ‘No Sequel’ is their first song to have solo piano backing, delivering an expressive new sound that seamlessly joins their usual, distinctive vocal harmonies.

In the past, the band have been celebrated for their expansive acoustic soundtrack, often blending guitars, fiddle, bouzouki, percussion and three-part harmony arrangements to create a unique creative space, but on their new single, they’ve pared things back, delivering a vulnerable sound that lingers well beyond its four-minute runtime.

Available now on all major streaming platforms, including Spotify below, ‘No Sequel’ is textured, understated, and absolutely impossible to deny.

‘No Sequel’ and the band’s previous two releases, 'The Guiser's Fancy' and 'Sunrise' are available now from the band’s online store, where they’ll be absolutely free until 31st October.
