“Couch is kicking it old-school with a delightful modern twist…[They] are single – or sevenhandedly – breathing new life into the soul music scene.”
“Highly danceable, soul-lifting, get-out-of-your-chair music.”
- Quadio Media
"Amongst the clutter of the internet music world, there are some captivating indie bands that eventually find a way to stand out. Boston funk-pop group Couch is one of those worthy groups.”
- Dusty Organ
“Fusion seems to be a key word for Couch. Influenced by artists from Paul McCartney and Buddy Rich to Charlie Puth and Bruno Mars, Couch’s unique music brings together instruments as different as bass guitar and saxophone to blur the lines between genres...”
- The Harvard Crimson
Equipped with catchy hooks and powerhouse vocals, Couch aims to reshape familiar pop tropes in fresh ways. The Boston-based septet infuses pop songs with funk, R&B, jazz, and rock influences. Their vibrant sound is further defined by the members’ personal training in jazz, a cappella, and musical theatre.
Until Spring 2021, Couch members were scattered across the country at various universities; they tackled the challenges of being a “long-distance” band, writing and even recording virtually for three years. Despite these challenges, they celebrated the release of their debut EP, “COUCH,” in February 2021. The band injected each track with their signature flavor: expressive horns, warm vocals, and bubbling synths—crafting an oasis of joy for musicians and non-musicians alike.
