Premiere Courters Share Gritty Garage Rock Single May Song

Premiere: Courters Share Gritty Garage Rock Single “May Song”

Hailing from Boston, guitarist Dan Palimeri, bassist William (Billy) O’Brien, and drummer Ethan Cannon joined forces in 2011 to bring some extra edge to the local Boston scene. After a couple of EPs, a slew of shows, and the addition of guitarist/organist James Hammond, Courters are set to release a 12″ split EP with fellow Bostonians The Dazies. Ahead of the December 8 release, we bring you May Song.

Combining their influences of post-punk and 60’s garage, May Song is a garage rock anthem with gritty guitars and a tincture of pop. There’s a too cool vibe here with its lo-fi soundscape and a layer of grease from the touch of a Holy Ghost. As the “whoa whoa’s” comes to an end, the boys belt, “I’m old enough to know that you/ Just don’t fuckin’ hold hands,” with contempt like mangled scythes hanging over your ears while the band crashes with sharp jaws and dead limbs.

The Courters/The Dazies split “Seen a Ghost” is due next week and can be pre-ordered through Bandcamp.
