Discovering new music and bringing it to the ears of fans is one of the great joys in working in music. It’s not a matter of “knowing” a band first before anyone else, but it’s more so finding a band, realizing how good the music is, and wanting to share it with as many people as you can. So today, we have a brand new band today to introduce called Courier Club.
We have their debut single for you to check out: “Better Now.” The single injects a fresh sound into indie-rock, mixing in post-punk and crafting something that sounds somewhere between Tokyo Police Club and We Are Scientists. There’s a comforting sound in hearing vocals that sound smooth yet distorted, steady drum work, and electrifying guitar-work that crafts a sound that would have fit on most alternative radio stations in the mid-2000’s.
“Sometimes your life gets stuck in a monotonous cycle and you need to find a way out of it. You place your bets on a clean break but that’s hardly the case. Trudging out of it is usually a bit chaotic, filled with mistakes and eventually lessons to be learned,” Courier Club shares. “We wrote ‘Better Now’ to emulate that energy, whether it’s some form of victory or defeat, positive or negative, the force behind breaking out of that place is distinct.”
