Swagger is the word for Barns Courtney: see him retro gaming at work without giving a single fuck in the video for 99. His debut record The Attractions Of Youth (2017) is likewise dripping with youthful attitude, thanks to a headstrong mix of (indie) pop, (blues) rock with an unmistakeable American edge. Striking? Hell yeah: in spite of young years spent in Seattle, Courtney is a real British rabble-rouser. The way he struts around the stage – swagger to the max – inevitably brings comparisons with Jagger.
