Courtyards Q&A

Your name:

Where are you from?
Northern band based in Huddersfield, UK.

Name of band:

Who else is in your band?
Matt Riley (vocals, guitar), Luke Allcock (drums), Mortimer Pavlitski (keys & synth), Callum Usher (guitar) and Nathan Pearson (bass).

How would you describe yourselves and your music?
Five-piece alternative indie-rock band. Students full of severely mediocre banter.

Who are your main influences musically?
Catfish & The Bottlemen, Kings of Leon, Arctic Monkeys, The Wombats, Two Door Cinema Club, Muse.

What do you hope to achieve in music?
Get more people enjoying our music, write more material and go on tour. 

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
We have been lucky to support some big names such as Sigma, Josh Kumra, Carnabys, Kerri Watt, and Mistajam but probably the highlight of our career was having a slot opening HudLive festival this year

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
One of our early gigs playing at a pub on our student campus where two of our guitarist's strings snapped, an amp malfunctioned and the PA we were using kept giving out.

What song would you use to describe your music?
Darude - Sandstorm. Nah, 'Disarray', as it was our first recording and first original as a band.

Where can we listen to it?

Where can we find out more about your music? 

Anything else you’d like to say about your music that I forgot to ask?
Were in the process of writing some new material that's slightly different to 'Disarray' and are excited to get in the studio soon! Keep an eye out!
