Boston-based band Couch infuses pop with funk, rock, and R&B/soul. Their vibrant sound is further defined by the members’ backgrounds 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 as well as three new singles and a 20-city headline tour in 2022.
The band injects each track with their signature flavor: expressive horns, warm vocals, and bubbling synths—crafting an oasis of joy for musicians and non-musicians alike. Stay up to date on their activity by following them on Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok!

“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
