Following his debut album The Attractions of Youth, Barns Courtney gives an absorbingly brilliant show at American Beauty.
Barns Courtney is greeted by an enlivened crowd, consisting of a wide mixture of fans, all threaded with a common anticipation for Courtney. This is reminiscent of Courtney’s music, one filled with a heterogeneity of sounds and evolving tones, though all built on the foundation of skilled vocals and a booming band.
