Fresh faced three-piece indie band - bucking the trends and forging their own path, creating music bursting with youthful exuberance. Songs of kitchen sink drama and social commentary...backed by choppy rhythms and driving guitar...Bring it!
Having formed back in March 2022, the last year has been a bit of a mad one for The Corsairs. They played their first live show just a few months after forming (and only three weeks after finding a drummer). They have since gone on to sell-out their own headline shows and act as support for several up and coming artists, such as Andrew Cushin, Tom A. Smith and China Bears.
In summer they played their first festival stage at the Yorkshire Balloon Fiesta and more recently they supported Welsh indie legends Trampolene (their new best mates) when they played at York’s Fulford Arms for Independent Venue Week...hoping for more of this in the future ;)
The Corsairs have also managed to find time record a bunch of demos and to visit Young Thugs studios to record their second single (avaliable on all the platforms). They’ve already gained a reputation as one of the top local bands on the York music scene. All this in under a year...roll on the next 12 months...
What’s been going on...
