London based all female band The Courtesans release their debut single ‘Genius’ this Monday (25th August 2014). The bands long-awaited debut album ‘1917’ will follow on the 8th September 2014.
‘Genius’ is a seductive track containing wonderful howling guitars, mesmerising drums and sultry layered vocals. The accompanying hard-hitting video considers the never-ending, unattainable portrayal of ‘the perfect woman’. With unavoidable advertising and mounting social pressure from both sexes.
The band will be playing Proud Camden this August and have also promised more live dates (we’ll obviously bring you these once we have them). Also, there’s a quite brilliant remix of ‘Genius’ on SoundCloud. Click below to hear the ‘Sidewalks and Skeletons’ version…
The Courtesans are Sinead La Bella – Vocals, Saffire Sanchez – Guitar, Agnes D. Jones – Bass and Victoria Brown – Drums
