Well known for her songwriting skills and her sharp sense of humour, the young Australian Courtney Barnett softly drifts between sixties guitars and modern punk. Sometimes pop, sometimes rock, the girl who grew up with Nirvana and Hendrix, whilst also admiring Patti Smith and PJ Harvey, tells us the story of the ordinary life with bold honesty and endearing melodies. Brilliant of course.
[Eurockéennes 2016]Continue Reading · From Eurockéennes FestivalBrown hair blowing in the wind, her pockets full of sand, her native Tasmania in her heart; Courtney Barnett generates music in her own likeness. Capricious and melodious, this Australian artist has managed to successfully combine rhythmic sensitivity with grinding garage guitars. The sincerity of her writing and her proclamation of independence via her own label Milk! Records, are reflected in a savvy cocktail of exquisite song writing, unbridled rock and power pop, all of it in a perpetual search for transformation. Dressed in her denim jacket and accompanied by her loyal crew, she uses a good dose of self-mockery to display her doubts, her enthusiasm, her joys and her inebriation on stage. Oh yeah.
