Montreal band Pottery release debut single (listen), touring w/ Parquet Courts

pottery band montreal
That’s them in the corner: POTTERY

Montreal’s Pottery have been playing for a little over a year, pureeing genres — nervy mutant pop, krautrock, psych — and putting on very high energy shows. Up until this point the only place you could hear their music was to see them live (I caught them at M for Montreal earlier this month) but Pottery have just announced their debut single, “Hank Williams,” which crams in an amazing amount of hooks, riffs and changes into its 2:43 minute running time. Think the dashing charm and twangy flourishes of early Orange Juice mixed with The Undertones’ knack for a big, urgent chorus, alll cut through with a dark, mischievous streak.

“‘Hank Williams’ was one of the first songs we wrote,” say the band. “We were messing around with a few ideas we had and the song just fell into place naturally. Once we had the bones of the song in place a friend heard it and said it sounded like Hank Williams on speed. We liked that idea, so we ran with it for the lyrics. There ya have it, Hank was born (again).” The song makes its premiere in this post and you can listed below.

Pottery will open for a couple Canadian dates next week on Parquet Courts’ tour: Toronto’s Danforth Music Hall on December 5 and Montreal’s Corona Theatre on December 6.
