New Zealand imprint Flying Nun has a stunning catalogue, with each release seeming to come with a stamp of quality.
Canadian group The Courtneys are the imprint's latest signings, with the Vancouver band set to release a new album later this year.
Endearingly scrappy indie rock of an early 90s vintage, comparisons could include early Guided By Voices, Canadian heroes Eric's Trip, or even elements of Flying Nun's own stable.
New record 'The Courtneys II' follows their cult debut, and it drops on February 17th (pre-order LINK).
Clash is able to premiere new cut 'Minnesota' and it feels like an alternative driving anthem, with that taut rhythm section working against the noize driven guitars.
Effortlessly cool, the wide open feel is all whirlwind, heat, and flash - time to hit the road...
