Alvvays Share After the Earthquake

Alvvays is dropping Blue Rev this Friday, so they wanted to rush one more single by you before you decided that, yes, you need to purchase the new record. This song’s one that certainly hits me with its musicality, and while Molly’s voice is solid, it’s not the main draw on this one…for me anyways. Rushing in with those twisting jangles, it reminds me a lot of our friends in Tres Oui, the opens up for Molly to shine through the middle. Personally, I like the meaty solo that bulks up momentarily, flexing the band’s musicianship, putting us on notice that the band are far more than your average pop rock band. But, suddenly, the song draws to a close, only to drift before bursting off emphatically with skittering that rip you to shreds. Blue Rev is out Friday via Polyvinyl.
