Antisocialites, the sophomore album from Alvvays was just released last Friday September 8 to vast critical praise, and today the Toronto-based band reveals a new video for album track “Dreams Tonite. Additionally the band is announcing a select few more Canadian shows for this fall, including an a fifth and final Mod Club show in December.
“Canada was at its coolest fifty years ago in Montreal at Expo ’67,” notes the band of their magically impressive time-travel clip. “The National Film Board caught a young country at its most iconic on sweet saturated 16mm. We fetishize retro-futurism and are thrilled our buddy Matt Johnson was able to facilitate our half-century temporal trip back to peak pop and op. And this video introduces our new drummer, so please meet Sheridan!”
The sophomore album from Alvvays titled, Antisocialites is set for release on September 8th via Royal Mountain Records. Across its 10 tracks and 33 minutes, the Toronto-based group dive back into the deep end of reckless romance and altered dates. After releasing the ear bender “In Undertow” last month, the band have today given us another crushingly catchy heartstring-tugger in, “Dreams Tonite.”
“So morose for me, seeing ghosts of me, writing oaths to me,” sings Molly Rankin on the Cocteau-pop stunner – the song from which the album’s name is derived.”In fluorescent light, antisocialites watch a wilting flower.”
Alvvays are back with a brand-new record due September 8th, and today they’ve released the video for the first single ‘In Undertow.’ Analog visual feedback and moon-man cameos fill the video singer Molly Rankin describes as “aquacosmic psych meets public access TV.” Rankin says, “I’m aware of my own drowning fixation and fascination with that bizarre lunar-tidal relationship. We’ve already filled our water video quota. Space is a trippier ocean.”
