The Courettes are an explosive garage rock duo from Denmark and Brazil who blend an exciting concoction of garage, surf, 60s girlie pop and riot grrrl attitude. Completed by the husband-and-wife partnership of vocalist/guitarist Flavia Couri (from Brazil) and drummer/backing vocalist Martin Couri (from Denmark, where they are based), following the recent reissues via Damaged Goods Records of The Courettes’ first two albums and brand new single ‘Hop The Twig’, the band are excited to announce a full UK tour for October and a brand new album – ‘Back In Mono’ – to be released October 15th via Damaged Goods.

Finding the band in full reverb-drenched, surf rock mode, like The Ronettes and The Ramones invite Link Wray and Duane Eddy for a wild party in Gold Star Studios’ echo chamber, the duo´s third album was mixed in Japan by Wall Of Sound aficionado Seiki Sato and shows The Courettes in top form, with great song writing and Spector-esque arrangements. The album also sees them add broader nuances, influences, and sound qualities to their garage rock recipe. The tunes are teen-trash tragedy garage meets The Ronettes and The Ramones in Gold Star Studios’ echo chamber. Fuzz guitars, loud drums, trashy pianos, jingle bells, tambourines and three-minute dance floor garage killers where a Wall of Sound blasts the songs out of the speakers!
