Alvvays

Videos

Alvvays are two women, three men, a crate of C-86 tapes and a love of jingle-jangle.

Molly Rankin and Kerri MacLellan grew up as next-door neighbours in Cape Breton, lifting fiddles and folk-songs. Heartbreaks of different shades soon entered their lives, as did the music of Teenage Fanclub and Belle & Sebastian. Similar noisy melancholy drifted over to Prince Edward Island, finding Alec OHanley, Brian Murphy and Philip MacIsaac.

Convening in Toronto, the group have been making music since since dusk or maybe dawn, when stars were appearing or fading off. As a result, their debut self-titled album is both sun-splashed and twilitnine songs concealing drunkenness, defeat and death in tungsten-tinted pop that glitters like sea glass.

With needlepoint melody and verse, Rankin and OHanleys songs were recorded at Chad VanGaalens Yoko Eno studio and mixed by Graham Walsh (Holy Fuck) and John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., Kurt Vile).

The resultant album is loud and clear and sure. Flood your ears. The self-titled record will be released on July 21 in Europe on Transgressive Records. On July 22, the record will be released in the USA on Polyvinyl Record and Royal Mountain Records in Canada.
