Alvvays have shared a new tune from their upcoming album and it’s dream-pop at its finest. “Dreams Tonite” is a soaring hit, with shimmering synths that pave the way and Molly Rankin’s impossibly clean vocals leading the charge. Not to mention there’s that choral hook that is sure to firmly lodge itself in your brain for days on end. I didn’t think I could be more excited for the release of their sophomore effort,Antisocialites, after they dropped the first single, “In Undertow,” but this has done the job. Take a listen below and then go pre-order their new album right here. It’s out September 8 via Polyvinyl.
This may be yesterday’s news, but when a band that delivers a debut album that’s full of pop hits and then follows up as triumphantly as Alvvays has, I feel like more people should take notice. We’ve already been graced with the audio of this song, but then the band doubled down and went the extra mile with this dreamy video for “In Undertow” that they shared yesterday. The cosmic video makes me think that they have taken their already soaring indie pop a step further into the stars on their upcoming sophomore release,Antisocialites,which will be out September 8 viaPolyvinyl.I’m stoked for that release–are you?
I think it’s probably obvious that we’ve been waiting anxiously for news of new Alvvaysmusic. Today it comes with the announcement of Antisocialites, which will come out in September via Polyvinyl. There’s a dream-like quality to the latest single, filling in the space with cascading distortion while Molly Rankin wraps her pipes around it all. I love how the band return without beating you over the head with some easily disposed hook, instead crafting a number that begs attention to details all the way to Rankin’s high-pitched fade out on the end. Rest assured, this album will be a gem.
