We’re delighted to be welcoming The Courettes back to Night & Day Cafe.

The Courettes is an explosive rock duo from Denmark and Brazil who found the perfect blend between garage rock, 60s Girl Group, Wall of Sound, r&b, surf music and doo wop. Like The Ronettes meet The Ramones at a wild party at Gold Star Studios echo chamber.

Praised by the biggest music magazines around the world, in 2020 the band signed with legendary British label Damaged Goods, putting them on the same roster as top international rock icons like Buzzcocks, Manic Street Preaches, Atari Teenage Riot, New Bomb Turks, Amyl and the Sniffers, Billy Childish, Captain Sensible and many others.

Their third album, Back in Mono, was released in the Fall 2021 and is a truly milestone in the career. The album brings the band in top form, showing great songwriting skills and with broader nuances, influences and sound qualities to their garage rock recipe. Singles, “Want You! Like a Cigarette”, “Hop The Twig” and “R.I.N.G.O.” all got airplay at BBC 6 Music in England and radio stations in Europe and the USA. Back in Mono got top reviews in the main music magazines like Mojo, Classic Rock and Shindig and was featured in countless Best Albums of 2021 lists.

The band continued their non-stop agenda, with 125 concerts in 2023 all over Europe, USA and the UK, with sold out shows in London and Glasgow and a mainstream festival performance at End of The Road Festival (UK). A compilation aiming the American and Japanese market Boom! Dynamite, an introduction to The Fabulous Courettes was released in May on Damaged Goods Records and Japanese label CAVA Records. 2024 started with the release of their new single “Shake!”, Killer fuzz riffs, motown beats, hints of soul and bits of young Tina Turner’s vibes are all in there, an apetiser showcasing a bit of the recipe of The Courettes’ new album The Soul of the Fabulous The Courettes, out in September on Damaged Goods Records.

One of the most hard-working bands on the European rock’n’roll scene, The Courettes have the reputation of delivering full-speed energetic performances.
