When the crafts of two talented songwriters collide, it is highly likely that you will get some awesome music. Los Angeles based duo Courtship. (the dot is there on purpose) is composed by Eli Hirsch, who previously worked for the likes of DREAMERS and Ethan Burns, and by Micah Gordon, who did the same with Tobias Jesso Jr. They met while playing in yet another band, Bloodboy, but then they decided to go on their own, writing and producing music in Micah’s bedroom by the ocean.
The band’s first two tracks, the anthem-in-waiting ‘Stop For Nothing’ and the equally heady ‘Love For Everyone’, saw the pair mastering sunny synth-pop with no thought for consequence. ‘Sail Away’ sees them more reflective and wary, but still completely joyous.
