COURTNEY BARNETT Our city looks pretty

Today Courtney Barnett shares new single City Looks Pretty and to celebrate has also announced her biggest Australian tour to date, including a WA stopover at Metropolis Fremantle on Saturday, August 18. Check out the new song below.

It’s all part of the celebrations around the release of her upcoming second album Tell Me How You Really Feel on May 18City Looks Pretty is the third single to date and follows the focussed fury of Nameless, Faceless and more contemplative Need a Little Time.

The new single takes Barnett in an entirely different direction. City Looks Pretty has Barnett experimenting with new song structures while delivering one of her most exhilarating guitar performances to date. It’s metronomic drive and squealing lead guitar provide the remarkable sonic foundation from which Barnett sings about friendship, place and home: “friends treat you like a stranger,” Barnett sings, “And strangers treat you like their best friend.”

Tell Me How You Really Feel is out May 18. Courtney Barnett plays Metropolis Fremantle on Saturday, August 18.
