The Courtneys play Pittsburgh with Cloud Nothings 12/5 @StageAE

45491608_2385611441454121_4046044099764027392_oBeloved power pop trio, The Courtneys released their sophomore album The Courtneys II on Flying Nun Records last year.  As their number one influence for years, the legendary label signed the trio as their first non-New Zealand act. The Courtneys drift back to the sound of the early ’90s, drawing from strong influences including Teenage Fanclub, Pavement, Eddy Current Suppression Ring, and The Clean. Guitarist Courtney Loove, bassist Sydney Koke and drummer/lead singer Jen Twynn Payne come together through a passionate collaborative songwriting process to deliver a special blend of fuzzy “artisanal grunge”.
