Courts's Merch '16 / photos by Rhys Cox
Courts is an unconventional band from Basildon, Essex. A group that produces a sound that is raw, significant and it is something that's just purely engaging.
I've found for a long time that Essex is lacking a real and wide music scene. This idea has changed after listening to Courts. The band has been doing their thing for a while and have refined their sound to bring something certainly new and refreshing here. It's very seldom that you find a band you can genuinely say is unique. Courts have not failed and still continue to spread the fresh funky noise of the west cost to the UK east coast.
They have done really well and earned great recognitions this year - a huge one from Elton John, for example.
NME has spoken words that could not be more precise, describing their successes.
"Reminding us of an early Arctic Monkeys meets The Streets, from their bold attitude, infectious tracks and rock star looks, Courts literally have every quality needed to become the next big phenomenon in music." read more at mtv.co.uk
