Hot London alt.rockers Courtesans release their new EP 'Better Safe Than Sober' on 31st March. Get a sneak peak at the awesomely dark lead single 'Mesmerise' below.

“‘Mesmerise’ is about being entranced so deeply that you lose yourself and forget who you are,” they explain. “You want this. You believe you need this. It becomes your first thought in the morning and the last thought before you fall asleep. You lose your identity. The desire fills your dreams and finally becomes you."

“The new video is dark meeting light, it’s disturbing yet liberating. We want more women to pick up instruments. Be musicians, tour managers, sound engineers etc and say f**k it! Don’t leave it up to the boys, but do not dumb down your femininity to be respected, be yourself and be free! We want to not only encourage women in music but for more men to accept that it is ok to look up to female artists.”
