Scandinavian garage-punk sensations THE COURETTES have made a video for their latest single which they're premiering exclusively with Vive Le Rock!

Touting a gloriously lo-fi approximation of Phil Spector's classic girl-group sound, 'Want You! Like A Cigarette' is the first puff of sessions for the duo's long awaited third album set for release later this year through Damaged Goods.

Based in Denmark, The Courettes comprise Brazilian singer/guitarist Flávia Couri and Danish drummer Martin Couri. Releasing their debut album Here Are The Courettes in 2015, they've racked up a super-impressive 250+ gigs in fifteen countries, sharing stages with the likes of The Sonics, Pretty Things, The Bellrays, Jon Spencer, B52s, Stray Cats and loads more.

“Once we got a review saying The Courettes was 'the real deal, the most authentic 60s inspired garage rock since the Milkshakes were around' (Lee Cotterell, Vive Le Rock!)," they chirrup. "This is our first single for Damaged Goods Records, the Godfather label of British garage punk. We grew up listening to these records, so we're proud of being on their roster together with some of our heroes. "

'Want You! Like I Cigarette' sold out of its initial limited edition red vinyl pressing in a week, but a second pressing of 500 copies on pink vinyl is available to order here.
