The Courettes - Won't Let You Go


  Surfbort aren't the only band who've just released an album of the year contender. Brazilian/Danish married duo Flavia & Martin Couri have had a busy year. You'll probably know them better as The Courettes ( You've hopefully heard their excellent single Hop The Twig ( Maybe you caught the cd rerelease of their first 2 albums which came out earlier this year on Damaged Goods Records ( Maybe you've even managed to see them on their current UK tour. 

  If you are a fan of the garage rocking twosome then you need a copy of their new album, Back In Mono. Pitched as “spit ´n´snarl garage rumble-meets-Phil Spector pop” it's a modern day classic. It's 14 killer garage rock tracks given an impressive production job. It's the 60's transported into the modern age. It's an album full of delights. It's available on vinyl, cd and digital download here :

  As well as Hop The Twig, the album also boasts more singles in the form of Too Late To Say I'm Sorry,  Want You! Like A Cigarette and the newly released R.I.N.G.O. There's a reworking of Xmas song Christmas (I Can Hardly Wait) plus another 9 tracks that could easily be given a single release. The album deserves a place in your collection. 

  This song reminds me a little of Love You So by The King Khan & BBQ Show ( It's a vibrant up tempo rocker that'll have you bopping around. You may recognise it as a reworking of a track from the 2019 Too Late To Say I'm Sorry ep. It's called Won't Let You Go...
