Hailing from South Australia is Courts and Kings, who aside from having a super catchy repertoire of indie pop tunes such as ‘Rocket Ships and Jet Packs‘, are also one of our favourites to take out this years Triple J Unearthed High Competition.
‘Rocket Ships and Jet Packs’ is easily one of my favourite songs I have discovered on Unearthed this year. Its fresh, upbeat and jangly indie pop with a boy girl interplay of vocals that gives the likes of San Cisco a real run for their money. I am a real sucker for that mix of calypso beats and soaring guitar rocks and these guys are nailing a sound that is a proven formula for success if The Griswolds, Jungle Giants and Jinja Safari are anything to go by. Regardless of how they end up going in the Unearthed High competition, these guys will be scoring more support gigs and hopefully some festival slots before the next couple of years are out.
