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!

“Couch is kicking it old-school with a delightful modern twist…[They] are single – or sevenhandedly – breathing new life into the pop music scene.”

- Sheesh

“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
