The Courtneys may be a relatively new band, but they’ve had exposure on music television in both Canada and the U.S. — with two of their videos aired on MuchMusic’s The Wedgeand the song “90210″ used in a 2013 episode of MTV’s Awkward. The all-female trio from Vancouver is playing a handful of shows this summer.
Consisting of singer/bassist Sydney Koke, guitarist Courtney Garvin and drummer Jen Twynn Payne, The Courtneys have described their own style as “a special blend of fuzzy slacker pop,” influenced by 1990s artists like Courtney Love, Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr. The group’s lyrics tackle subjects such as TV shows, male celebrities and financial problems.
