Courtyards’ Go Down is a very interesting and vibrant effort from an energetic alt-rock band – although packaged in subdued bundle.We guess that because they are from England, the alt-pop-rock attitude just comes and goes as they please – for the better.
The narrative on the song’s lyrics confound us in that there could be injected more atmospheric nuggets added to the song. But “au contraire mon ami”, in the second half of the song there’s a gentle “hand in your face” moment with changes in the timing and attitude.
We think it’s a particularly interesting buffet that the band served up in this 1 year old song. It’s certainly a big difference between their later offering “Firelight” and this particular piece.
Anywho, the attitude is what we always look for in our selections and it’s a morsal of a song that you should check out. Oh and check out “Firelight” as well.
