Alvvays
Alvvays
(Polyvinyl)

Canadians with a penchant for easy going, playful pop sounds, front woman Molly Rankin’s dreamy vocals and serious lyrical themes are met with jangly rhythms, surf-rock guitars, and an overall indie-smart feel. The band feels so very close to twee-pop on some occasions, yet are closer to fuzzy guitar-pop or even bedroom-pop mostly, but surely never reside anywhere near mundane or easily classifiable. Soaked thoroughly in reverb and melody, fans of The Concretes, Camera Obscura, Belle & Sebastian, Teenage Fanclub and swirling, sunny yet noisey indie-pop should investigate further. Oh, and the band is pronounced ‘Always.’ (Tom Haugen)
