The Courtneys drift back to the sound of the early ’90s while reflecting a fun-in-the-sun west coast mentality – delivering a special blend of fuzzy slacker pop that draws comparisons to Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr. and The Clean. The musicianship is tight, the hooks are sharp, and the songcraft is dynamic. They’ve added tons of dates on top of their string with Tegan and Sara! Check out a full list below.

The Courtneys stem from Vancouver’s thriving music scene – their debut and self-titled full length is on its third pressing after last year’s release via Hockey Dad Records. You can also catch it on tape from Burger Records and Gnar Tapes. Recorded over one weekend on Vancouver Island, The Courtneys exudes vibes of the ladies’ strong sun-drenched Flying Nun / New Order / 90’s grunge influence and has gained critical acclaim from Rookie, Pitchfork, NME, Noisey plus many more.
