Self-defined as an alt-sad rock band, Courtesy is that first scratchy breath after being submerged too long: the one that burns your throat but makes you smile nonetheless because any weight is worth feeling godlike in this moment.
These four musicians from Milwaukee would be better classified as visionaries, creating holistic dreams of albums that will have you listening cover to cover and starting over again. With flint-heavy vocals and pointed lyrics, drums that force you to move, mourning keys, and suspenseful guitars full of grit, Courtesy is the band to listen to when the only thing left to live for is spite, masochistic joy at your own pain, and music...music that will let flames lick around your heart until it starts really beating again until you can feel in your core every previously thoughtless effort at being alive.
