Bio

Courts & Kings are an indie band based in Adelaide who home-record their own songs. You can check them out on Facebook, iTunes, Triple J Unearthed, Twitter, YouTube, SoundCloud, CD Baby, Spotify and Instagram.

Jack Holmes, Harry Deadman, Lewis Brideson and Maxi Peters began playing together in early 2012, all attending the same school and sharing similar taste in music. Later in 2012 they released their debut EP. The five tracks on the EP are all written, recorded and produced by the young band in their home studio, blending some alternative, pop, folk, afro-beat, indigenous, electro and indie styles together to form their own unique sound. Check out their EP on iTunes!

Recently the lovely Greta Stark joined the band, adding some sweet harmonies to some new tunes released throughout 2013. Courts & Kings have previously been #1 on the Triple J Unearthed indie chart, #3 overall, and shared the stage with the likes of Jinja Safari, Messrs, 44th Sunset and Lyall Moloney.

Their new EP 'All We Know' it out now!

You can contact the band with any queries about buying their EP, or questions regarding upcoming gigs via their email.

Sweet little ditty. Got a real Jungle Giantsy kind of vibe. And so great to hear a classy duet... it's been too long.

Really like duets like this, such a cute track. I can see myself dancing around like a loser, hands in the air in a skungy venue somewhere to this one - in a good way. KEEP DOIN WHAT YO DOIN!

Really nice guitar melodies, and space within those verses. Thoughtful parts and cool nods to UK guitar bands. You must be a lovely gang strollin' around school.
