Featured Song: courtship. – Sail Away.
courtship.’s SoundCloud bio reads as follows: “Eli and Micah write and produce everything in Micah’s bedroom by the ocean. Courtship.” This seems only fitting – in listening to their tracks, one can vividly picture the duo working on their tracks to the backdrop of the ocean’s waves and the beating sun of a warm day.
In fact, both of courtship.’s prior releases – the undeniably captivating singles “Love For Everyone” and “Stop For Nothing – scream surf rock, but with a modern, synth-driven twist. “Sail Away” is no different, exuding those same vibes, and keeping things fresh with some tasteful distortion adding a bit of grit to the catchy song.
On their Facebook page, courtship. lists MGMT among their inspirations, and it’s easy to draw a comparison between the two bands – aside from the fact that they’re both two-man acts, courtship. and MGMT each rock an indie/alternative-electronica fusion sound that manages to be distinctively current and classic at once.
