Alvvays (pronounced Always) is a Canadian five piece from Toronto, Ontario bursting of contagious, high-spirited surf rock.
They are the perfect accompaniment to home videos shot on 8mm film, for carelessness, youth and letting go and for days spent lazing at the beach.
It’s fuzzy, reverbed and effortless. Full of synth, drums and guitar, fighting the urge to dance is near impossible. You’re going to want to put this on repeat this summer.
Top track to listen too: Adult Diversion:
