Alvvays

Toronto indie pop foursome Alvvays, the new band from onetime solo artist Molly Rankin, just finished up a few Canadian dates with Yuck. They'll pick back up with that band below the border for a few East Coast shows next month, including NYC for a show at Bowery Ballroom on February 15 to which tickets are still available.

Looks like Alvvays' debut album, which they recorded with Chad Van Gaalen and was originally slotted for early 2014, won't see a release till the summer, but you can check out two of their exceedingly catchy songs below. NYC has more opportunities to catch them live, too: Alvvays open for Sylvan Esso at Rough Trade on January 30 (tickets); and then they play with Courtney Barnett and Kins at Rough Trade on February 22 (sold-out). UPDATE: Alvvays aren't playing Courtney's show anymore, drat.

All tour dates are listed, along with streams and a video, below...

Who is the Alvvays' singer?

Posted by Anonymous | January 24, 2014 2:59 PM

Yes + Yes.

Alvvays thinks they're popular enough to have a road movie type music video that shows them dicking around?

Well I'd like to dick around with that blond!

Do you think that when the blond woman drives a car or truck she pushes that hair away from her eye so she has the ability to perceive depth?

I would love to kick all of them in the teeth. They look like they've just walked out of a store in Soho called "Le Bouillebaisebraisse".

SoHo. OK? OK. It stands for South of Houston St. But, seeing as you're from one of the flyover states, I'm sure you are also pronouncing Houston as if you were in Texas.

Knowledge is power, fool. Use it.

While the Vs are played out, none of you assholes can fuck with a Rankin; neither literally, nor figuratively.

so if you are not from texas, but only referring to a city there, you say, "House-ton", to show that you are a native New Yorker?

Posted by help me to understand, 5:26 | January 24, 2014 10:48 PM

House-ton is only a NY thing, referring to a NY thing.

It's still Houston, TX.

I know, but they were really going out on a limb with their barely plausible attribution of that mispronunciation based on what, they didn't agree with a posted comment? That is as weak and unapt as the premise I put in my comment. The only difference is that their sanctimonious regard for pronunciation is real life pretentiousness I have encountered before, but when the shoe is on the other foot, it shows how ridiculous they are.

Behind every cute hipster chick is a douchey-looking dweeb.

Chvrches would fuck them up. Honestly, the "v" thingy is Chvrches' thing. Fvck Alvvays.

"Honestly, the "v" thingy is Chvrches' thing."

Right, because Chvrches were the first band to do the "v" thing...

Didn't you hear? Chvrches go way back into antiquity. Carved in stone at Pompeii.

CHVRCHES EXSORBEO PENES DI(I)VUS MACHINA.

I'm so jealous of you damned canadians and your damned best festival ever´╗┐

this was my favorite when the album released.... now it's 'archie.' next will probably be 'next of kin.' sign of a very strong, debut album.
