[LISTEN] Courts - Wanna Be High

Basildon beat-makers, Courts, are stretching boundaries and pushing summer past this dreary Bank Holiday weekend with new track, ‘Wanna Be High’. 


It’s only the quintet’s third track and follows on from the infectiously upbeat ‘Part Of’ and the woozy ‘Santana’. Much like the latter, ‘Wanna Be High’ oozes with confident nonchalance and lip-smacking vocals like “I’m on a slave ship from the twenty-first century, I’m twenty four and I’m still running entry” are brushed off casually. 

It’s three minutes in though when Courts really show us what they can do with funk-fuelled guitar riffs that swagger past any chip on their shoulders. It’s a song for the nine-to-five people who are constantly under the clutches of bullshit bosses and surrounded by snakes, a song for the not so Great British public.

You can catch the band in September at Notting Hill Arts Club on the 6th and at Bestival on the 13th and listen to the new track below:
