Coquette is a wildly energetic American indie band with Franco Anglo roots based in Central Vermont, consisting of Cobalt Tolbert (guitar), Angus Davis (bass) and Titien Tolbert (drums).

Several incarnations later, including a run as a successful acoustic cover band named Carter Glass, Coquette emerged in the Spring of 2013. Influenced by Prog Rock and Punk, they have created a varied, frenetic kind of Alternative Rock, with a strong focus on composition. They released their first EP “The Mandrill” with Vincent Freeman of Green Mountain Records in September of 2013 and their sophomore EP, “Separatio” in November of 2014. They play regularly in Montpelier, have played several festivals around Vermont, occasionally headlining. They are continually writing new material, play at any opportunity they can grab, and have plans to conquer first New England, then The World! https://www.facebook.com/coquette/
