Get to Know… Alvvays, Announce Tour with The Decemberists

The dreamy pop quintet, Alvvays had a breakout year in 2014. Their self-titled debut album was critically acclaimed and fan adored.
Released by Polyvinyl Records the album was produced by indie-guru Chad VanGaalen and mixed by Holy Fuck’s Graham Walsh along with indie all-star producer John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., Kurt Vile.)

Alvvays is comprised of Molly Rankin (lead vocals/guitar), Kerri Maclellan (keys/vocals), Alec O’Hanley (guitar), Brian Murphy (bass), and Phil MacIsaac (drums).
Their aesthetics are somewhere between a mix of  sunny California and moody countryside in Scotland, think Belle & Sebastian and The Vaselines.
Molly Rankin’s sugary voice is seamlessly layered with melancholic melodies, harmonized guitars, and drumming that doesn’t skip a beat causing you to get up and dance around. Which is just what the GATRS are needing this Monday.

About Naomi (838 Articles)
Most important thing to know about me is that I'm a melomaniac and shameless fangirl. I am addicted to concerts, they are my sanctuary and safe haven. When I'm on the front row on the barricade of a concert... I feel that I am truly home. I'm also a proud and happy vinyl crate-digger. Whether it's searching for vinyl at flea markets, garage sales, vintage shops... I am a sucker for the crackling of a good record when the needle drops on a turntable. I am a true Cancer with Moon in Cancer and ascending in Pisces. Also, loves dogs (especially my son Elvis) and quality food porn pictures. Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook: @youthquakermimi
