All the way from Vancouver, Canada - The Courtneys - drift 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.

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.

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 a cool gang than too-cool clique.

“These eight up beat songs beg to soundtrack the highs and lows of summertime” - Pitchfork
