Label Review.

2017 album.  

Our Overview.  

Canadian Indie group Alvvays broke into the music scene 2014 with their self titled album which was received with applause from all in press and fans alike. After a 3 year wait we finally are treated to their sophomore album ‘Antisocialites’. Its never easy for a band to follow up on a critically acclaimed debut album that received accolades from Pitchfork, NPR, Rolling Stone and more.

However the Toronto-based group dive back into the deep end of reckless romance and altered dates. Ice cream truck jangle collides with prismatic noise pop while Molly Rankin’s wit is refracted through a crystalline surf counterpoint. Through thoughtful consideration in basement and abroad, Alvvays have renewed their Scot-pop vows with a powerful new collection of manic emotional collage.

The new effort’s 10 tracks find the band diving “back into the deep-end of reckless romance and altered dates,” according to a press release. Such is the case with the lead single, “In Undertow”, a wave of strumming dream pop that crests with a surfy edge. The track finds lead singer Molly Rankin taking a dizzying but pragmatic look at a failing relationship.

The band have embarked on an extensive world tour this summer, culminating in the UK at a sold out show at London’s Koko.
