With the release of their absolute banger ‘Everything’ I got addicted to raucous indie-alternative rock band Courtyards from West Yorkshire. Now they have finally released their new single ‘Stay Up’, and the intro itself is catchy enough to have me jump off my chair and do a little dance. The band has been living up to the expectations during festivals such as Live at Leeds, The Alternative Escape, Blackthorn Festival and most recently Kendal Calling. ‘Stay Up’ is inspired by the desire to help those close to you with their mental health battles while at the same time working out how to be that figure of solidarity to confide in.
‘Stay Up’ is a synth-driven summer anthem for fans of The Slow Readers Club and The Wombats amongst many others, because it is hard not to love the Coutyards-sound!
