Introducing: Alvvays

Listening to Canadian band Alvvays (pronounced Always) takes you back in time to an era of peace and love, and oh; good music! This is really good foot tapping, head nodding 60s influenced indie- pop that you just can’t help but be drawn into.

Alvvays consists of Molly Rankin, daughter of John Morris Rankin of The Rankin Family, Kerri MacLellen, Alec O’Hanley, Brian Murphy and Phil MacIssac. They formed in 2012 in Toronto. Following tours with The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and Peter Bjorn and John, the group recorded a full-length album, Alvvays, which was released by Royal Mountain Records in July 2014. They’ve had praise for their debut album from The Guardian, NME, MOJO, Pitchfork and Rolling Stone and they’re all set to start playing their first UK tour on 20th October.

Guitar- pop single “Marry Me Archie” is hard to forget with its catchy chorus and “Adult Diversion” also draws you in with pounding drums, guitar, and the dreamy vocals of Molly Rankin. “Next of Kin” is another catchy pop song which has very much the same vibe as the others with its carefree and fun sound. I can sum up Alvvays by saying I can imagine listening to them driving along the coast on a hot summer’s day, with the volume turned up loud and a smile on my face.

You can check out their new video for ‘Next of Kin’ below and find out more about Alvvays here.
