Here at Add To Wantlist HQ we’ve been a fan of 60’s inspired garage rock & roll duo The Courettes for a while. Not only because Flavia & Martin Couri look cool and are stylish (their clothes! their cover art!), but above all because they make music the way we love it. It seems like they are only getting better. Their new single Hop The Twig is perhaps their biggest hit to date, a great blend of danceable girl group garage and echoing surf rock with lyrics to sing along (if you’re wondering why they look a little gloomy on the sleeve: “hop the twig” was slang for dying in the 19th century – a link to these pandemic times?). The single, featuring the nice Spector-esque Only Happy When You’re Gone as the B-side, is out now digitally and on 7″ vinyl through Damaged Goods Records. The Courettes’ upcoming third album Back in Mono will be released Fall 2021. We can hardly wait.
