High-octane art-rock squeezed out of Leeds. Idyllic and melodic, a hypnotic blend of guitar driven alternative music. Their eclectic sound, an explosive palate of fruitful synth and bold bass, has made inroads into the music scene and is quickly becoming their trademark.
Courtyards' sound is drenched in a wall of dirty, reverb-soaked indie rock centered around delivering consistent euphoric hooks and creating an immersive atmosphere. Their diverse tracks range from brooding basslines and lustrous vocals to epic guitar lines and anthems fused with summer melancholy.
Receiving extensive support from BBC Introducing for previous singles; 'Go Down' and 'Firelight'; the support continued in 2017 with their single, 'Everything' which provided a summer staple described as “2017’s catchiest chorus so far" - H2N.
The 4-piece based in Huddersfield polished off 2017 to the sound of a sold out Manchester Club Academy in support of No Hot Ashes.
New single, 'Hear You Call' kicked off 2018 to a great start, gathering further BBC Introducing love & first plays on Amazing Radio. Their music video has received over 13K views so far.
Courtyards proceeded to have an electric summer travelling down south for the first time and debuting festivals such as Live at Leeds, the Alternative Escape and Blackthorn Festival. Receiving good reception on their travels and "proving they are ready for the step to festival main stages" on the way - The Emergence.
Latest single 'Backseat' continues to receive support from BBC Introducing & Amazing Radio and summarises the bands' rollercoaster of a summer with the constant ups & downs of touring.
