This Vancouver trio consistently churn out catchy garage pop tunes. They released their newest album, The Courtneys II, on legendary New Zealand record label Flying Nun Records. We got a chance to catch up with them about their new material, what it’s like being in a long-distance band, astrological musings, and their love of spas.
Lauren Spear, otherwise known as Le Ren, is a local Montreal musician and singer-songwriter, and she just released her double EP Songs I Outta Hear/Songs I Outta Sing. The former reads as an apology letter from a former partner, and the latter takes her perspective as she processes through loss. The music invokes the vintage country sounds of Loretta Lynn, but also repackages it for a modern context.
Ambica Sharma writes poetry, sings and also runs her own dance Bollywood dance company in Montreal. She also does theatre. She had a brief stint with radio in Mumbai, India. She enjoys presenting Desi Beats at CKUT which blends her passion for music, culture & involvement with community.
