Live Gallery: Courtney Barnett – The Garage, London

Australian indie rock delights in London...

Courtney Barnett is someone to cherish. A songwriter with incredible wit and daring, her novelistic way with words blends the personal with the universal. We’re a long way on from her debut, but the Australian artist keeps raising the bar.

2021’s outstanding ‘Things Take Time, Take Time’ was rightly lauded with critical praise, while 2023 instrumental suite ‘End Of The Day’ saw another diversion – collating music composed for the film Anonymous Club.

Live, she remains a thrill. There’s something impetuously endearing about Courtney Barnett, now able to draw on a blossoming catalogue, stacked with indie pop cuts.

Hitting London for a run at the Garage, Courtney Barnett was on tremendous form, digging out past cuts and fan favourites to the delight of the capacity crowd.
