Couple Background Info
One of the few true blue power pop bands in the region, Couple has been plying its trade for years now, dedicating itself to remind people of the virtues and magic of ‘the song’, and the power of the pop!! Taking cues from bands like The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Big Star, The Who, The Raspberries, The Beat, The Rooks, Enuff Znuff and Weezer, Couple has kept on doing what they do best and hope to put a smile (and hopefully a headbang or toe-tap or two) on all youse guys’ faces. But, making you wet your pants will make us equally happy too!!
Relying solely, and foolishly, on the dodgy songcraft of our dodgy and lame frontman, Aidil, Couple has continued to defy the odds as none of us can play our instruments competently to save our lives, hoping to inspire similarly incompetent kids to just form their own bands and stick it to the Man!! Our live shows are textbook examples of the triumph of substance over style, if you call professional musicianship ‘style’, that is. Sloppy and loud, with more than a touch of toilet humor in our lame crowd banter (if we’re up for it!!), our live shows will never fail to make you wet your pants with laughter and icky stuff. Yes, we’re THAT good and THAT bad!! (via ReverbNation)
Think a Malaysian Weezer with a mix of Greenday, with a spritz of Pop. It’s good music – catchy, has a good beat, well-crafted – but I have no clue what they are saying. But if you’re familiar with me and my requirements for good music, being able to understand what people are saying isn’t as important as the music. Which, as you might recall, is why I am a fan of bands like Superbus, InCulto (who broke up), Ladylike Lily, etc.
Couple has a few sides to them that you’ll discover as you listen. They can be Poppy, they can be harder and Rockier, and they can even be gentle and soft. There’s bound to be something there for even the pickiest of ears to enjoy. So do yourself a favor today and give Couple a listen. Enjoy!
