mp3: “Mars Attacks" - The Courtneys ft. Young Braised


It’s been a bit since we’ve heard from our favorite all-gal trio out of Vancouver, The Courtneys. Since releasing their self-titled EP last year, the ladies hit the road for an opening stint with Tegan and Sara, gave into their vampire side and then announced the release of this 7″ single through Hockey Dad Records.  “Mars Attack” is the latest in their already banging collection of sunny surf, but this single also incorporates a surprising element – rap. The sweet, but spunky beginnings in this latest track of guitar-driven noise pop receives a verse on aliens and weeds from Young Braised, and it really, really works.
