“The real deal. The most authentic 60’s inspired garage rock since Thee Milkshakes were around”. Lee Cotterell (Vive Le Rock, UK)
WHAAAAUW! The Courettes is the garage duo sensation from Brazil and Denmark! It's savage! It's dynamic!
After the blasting debut album “Here are the Courettes” (Sounds of Subterrania, Germany, 2015), the explosive single “Boom! Dynamite!” (Bachelor Records, Austria, 2016), the thrilling single “Hoodoo Hop”, a split with Powersolo (Sounds of Subterrania, Germany, 2017) and a shaking live album “alive from Tambourine Studios” (Chaputa Records, Portugal, 2017) – all of them critically acclaimed on the garage scene all around Europe - The Courettes released in 2018 their second album, “We Are The Courettes”!
The Courettes were busy last year delivering their full-speed energetic performances (more than 70 concerts!) in 12 countries around Europe and promoting We Are The Courettes.“The real sound of now busting through my door, new songs that keep kicking the history forward. I can’t imagine my turntable without The Courettes” - wrote the legendary David Fricke from Rolling Stone for the album´s inner notes. We Are The Courettes received brillant reviews in the main European rock magazines:
"The dynamite just keeps on coming!" Lindsay Hutton (The Next Big Thing, UK)
“Your new favourite band once you´ve heard them!” Marc Mcstea (Louder Than War, UK)
“Unbelievably good songs, top tunes. The COURETTES get along completely without covers and have found their own distinctive sound. Charming, twisting and always danceable.” By Gereon Helmer (Ox Magazine, Germany)
“Crooked girl group love songs fed on a diet of bathtub amphetamines” Henry Hutton (Shindig!, UK)
“Like amped-up Kinks meets The Sonics in a dark alley” Lenny Helsing (Bananas Magazine, USA/UK)
“The Courettes full-bore attack would do any festival proud”. Kieron Tyler (Mojo, UK)
“The coolest couple of the Reeperbahn Festival” (The Music Minutes, Germany)
“‘60s-style garage band that has the look, the vintage gear, raw production, and actually play with pure fire and intensity. Most importantly, they have SONGS” (Mojo Workout)
In 2018 The Courettes was also a pioneer with their single “Voodoo Doll”. Featuring Brazilian horror legend Coffin Joe, it was the first release world wide on revolutionary media “vinyl video”. The first images ever coming out of a vinyl record are of The Courettes!!! Ultimate retro-futuristic coolness!
Flavia Couri (Vox, Guitar) and Martin Couri (Drums, Vox) have played at festivals like Eurosonic (Holland), Reeperbahn and Garageville (Germany), Cosmic Trip (France), Franklin Fest (UK), Gutter Island, SPOT, Distortion and Copenhagen Psych Fest (Denmark) and also toured in Sweden, Finland, Belgium, Spain, Austria, Italy, Portugal and Brazil and shared the stage with artists like The Sonics, The Pretty Things, Holly Golightly and The Bellrays.
2019 has been another awesome year. The Courettes played in big festivals like Azkena Rock Festivals in Spain, Roots & Roses in Belgium and Bukta Festival in Norway, sharing the stage with names as B52´s, Stray Cats, Jon Spencer, Kitty, Daisy and Lewis, Gang of Four, Weezer, Franz Ferdinand, an many others. A new double single (recorded / mixed) by Liam Watson at legendary ToeRag studios in London is coming out in December and The Courettes are back in their own StarrSound Studios for working on new songs to their third album to be released in 2020. Stay tuned for more jungle wildness & loud as hell Scandinavian rock n’ roll!
