The Courettes Kick Off 12 Shows In 12 Days With New Single Tough Like That

The Courettes are back in the UK this August and September with new single Tough Like That out now to kick off proceedings. The new tune is the most rocking track off the explosive rock duo from Denmark and Brazil’s latest album Back In Mono B-sides And Outtakes. Lyrically, it is a feminist anthem celebrating women who know what they want and know how to get it. These tough women also know who they don’t want, and how to get rid of them. Musically, it has a fuzz-fuelled haunting riff, hypnotic drums and an explosive vocal that recalls the roughness and attitude of early Tina Turner. This infusion of soulful rhythm n’ blues in The Courettes’ spit ‘n’ snarl garage is a hint of the direction the band may be heading on their forthcoming album, which is currently being recorded and is due to be released in 2024 on Damaged Goods Records.
