The Courtneys are coming back to Australia hot on the heels of their widely acclaimed second album, The Courtneys II. They’ll be road tripping across Sydney, Melbourne,
Wollongong, Byron Bay and for the first time ever, the trio will venture to Perth!
It was The Courtneys tour to Australia and New Zealand in 2015, which saw them cement their signing
to Flying Nun Records and today; the ridiculously charming trio
who stole hearts the first time around, are stoked to announce they’ll be returning to the great
southern lands in celebration of their impeccable sophomore LP.
Endless hooks, driving guitars and finely crafted melodies blend perfectly together to
create the sweet concoction that is The Courtneys sound. And these elements shine on II,
which garnered international acclaim as a “supremely catchy second album,” according to
Pitchfork who also lauded “Minnesota” with Best New Track while in Australia it caught
‘Album of the Week’ status at PBSFM, RTR FM, The Music, Beat Magazine and high rotation at FBi.
They’re a band you could say that should be at the top of your ‘must see’ lists and rightly so, as they again will provide Australian and New Zealand audiences to a special treat of
their blisteringly delightful and energy filled sophomore in a live setting.
For those who have not heard the sweet jangle of The Courtneys tunes before, this is the
perfect time to catch up, for those who have, we’ll see you soon for a dance!
