PRESS RELEASE:

FLYING OUT, BONE SOUP & 95bFM PRESENT: THE COURTNEYS
In Association with 100% Good & Future Popes

All the way from Vancouver, Canada - The Courtneys - have announced a series of shows in New Zealand this March.

Drifting back to the sound of the early ’90s while reflecting a fun-in-the-sun West Coast mentality, the 3-piece band will deliver their special blend of fuzzy slacker pop with four shows in Auckland and Wellington from March 6-9.

Greatly influenced by the likes of Eddy Current Suppression Ring and New Zealand's own Flying Nun bands, their 2013 self-titled eight track album is alive with fuzzed-up, clever pop that makes for the prefect soundtrack to summer.

Their musicianship is tight, the hooks are sharp, and the song craft is dynamic, with the band having spent much of 2014 touring the USA with twin pop icons Tegan & Sara.

The Courtneys’ have a special air that makes you want to be apart of their world and despite being named after the “mean girls” at bassist Koke's elementary school — “they were all called Courtney or Colleen, and had parties that I was never invited to” — their vibe is more cool gang than too-cool clique.
