New video from London rockers

As seen on Kerrang! Check out the “awesomely dark” new music video by hotly tipped London alt rock group Courtesans.

Courtesans explain,”‘Mesmerise’ is about being entranced so deeply that you lose yourself and forget who you are,”?they explain. “You want this. You believe you need this. It becomes your first thought in the morning and the last thought before you fall asleep. You lose your identity. The desire fills your dreams and finally becomes you.”

“We want more women to pick up instruments. Be musicians, tour managers, sound engineers etc and say **** it! Don’t leave it up to the boys, but do not dumb down your femininity to be respected, be yourself and be free! We want to not only encourage women in music but for more men to accept that it is ok to look up to female artists.”

Courtesans new EP ‘Better Safe Than Sober’ is out 31st March.
