Bringing news from The Courtesans this afternoon with a really stripped-down acoustic version of 'Swallow', another album teaser track from these gorgeous and super-talented ladies. We've got another 'Dirty Killer' remix coming later this week too.
"..saw The Courtesans live and still have not recovered" Von Pip Musical Express

Meeting on a dark wild night in London spurred on by absinthe kisses and tales to never be repeated, The Courtesans bring together four emphatic personalities merged by fate to craft an intoxicating brand of sultry, unapologetic electro rock with a bite. Brash and wild, powerful and unstable, The Courtesans are here.
Raucous guitars brush up against thigh-skimming angelic chords and seductive sounds; an irresistible mix of unpredictable music and provocative live shows all wrapped tenderly in the feminine form. Restless, tortured by their own dreams and a passion for their art, the secretive band have decided that their time is nigh.
The Courtesans are Sinead La Bella (Light), Agnes Jones (Darkness), Saffire Sanchez (Rebel) and Victoria Brown (Temptation). Debaucherous, vicious and addictive, the band’s brazen take on The Velvet Underground’s ‘Venus In Furs’ gives a tantalising taste of things to come. (See embedded track at the bottom).
With a uniquely theatrical slant in their approach to sensual, ethereal trip-hop, The Courtesans are currently recording their debut album, supported by a huge hypnotised fanbase and fully-funded by a successful Pledge campaign. Pledgers were privy to an exclusive uncensored video of ‘Dirty Killer (Remix)’ created by and featuring the band. See the censored version here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8m7KYbj-RHU-
