SUPPORT: The People Assembly, Shelley’s Monster and Lydia Lutudi (Lydia Lutudi)
“Imagine the dark melodrama of Nick Cave with the briefest whisper of PJ Harvey and the Lo-Fi grunge guitars of Sleater-Kinney and you’re getting close to something resembling Courtney Askey’s musical output thus far.“ (Great Central)
“Courtney Askey… Remember the name, it’s one you’ll want to be on the lookout for in the very near future.” (Radsound)
“Adding a gothic spin to folksy tales, Courtney’s honey-coated vocals lather mesmerising but taunting riffs in hypnotic songs that rip out your heart. Lo-fi and grungy, there’s an angelic essence to the melancholic darkness that descends across her debut album; ‘Oh! Softly Goes’.” (Unidays, The Edit)
Previously solo, she now plays as a self-titled shoegaze/grunge four-piece. She has been prolifically writing, performing and recording music since 2010.
The debut LP from the band, Oh! Softly Goes was released in 2017. The new single will be released on 22nd March 2019.
