The Courtneys

 

The Courtneys

A three-piece, all-girl band, The Courtneys are jamming out the sounds of summer on the beach. These girls are full of distorted, garage-fueled tunes that have gained them some attention over the past year with fans of cheap beer and slacking off. With their videos for songs “90210” and “Social Anxiety”, The Courtneys are putting out some serious ‘90s, whatever-dude vibes similar to acts like Mac DeMarco, King Tuff, or anything found on Burger Records.

Self-defined on their Facebook page as “slacker pop”, The Courtneys fit perfectly into the West Coast vibes of beach rock tunes and seem to be slipping into the scene seamlessly. Their self-titled debut album was met with critical acclaim and garnered them a large dose of local buzz. Catch these girls at your local skuzz-fest or beer tank, and I’m sure they won’t disappoint.
