If you are needing a reminder of Courtney Barnett’s punchy attitude and her ability to intertwine it with incredibly poetic songwriting, then check out her new single, ‘Need a Little Time’. This second single released from her upcoming album Tell Me How You Really Feel has much less of a punk-driven chorus than the first, yet still manages to come across just as powerful.
With somewhat simple chord progressions and drum rhythms, the song seamlessly floats in and out of mellow pop music and bold indie-rock.
After an almost sold out US tour, Barnett will begin the UK leg of the tour 25 May, and Tell Me How You Really Feel is due to be released 18 May.
