One of my top records of 2014. The Toronto five-piece constructs awesome jangle pop shimmering with youthful abandon and emotional sentiment. ALVVAYS, the 9-song debut, exemplifies Molly Rankin’s talented voice backed by the bliss of catchy hooks and melodies. The most accessible track is probably track 2 (“Archie, Marry Me”) b/c it comes with easily the catchiest chorus. Track 5 (“Party Police”) is my favorite track as I write this but it’s hard to pin point a top track just b/c it’s all so tight.
ALVVAYS is a bunch of Canadians named Molly Rankin, Kerri MacLellan, Alec O'Hanley, Brian Murphy, & Phil MacIsaac.
