Spending the summer months touring non stop, including shows at Glastonbury, Wayhome, Osheaga (FYF, Reading, and Leeds festival plays all follow later this month), Toronto’s Alvvays announce a collection of headline shows around Eastern and Atlantic Canada this October. Bringing along Kentucky-based, labelmates White Reaper to fuel up the support slot on the nine date run.
Comprised of Molly Rankin (lead vocals/guitar), Kerri Maclellan (keys/vocals), Alec O’Hanley (guitar), Brian Murphy (bass) and Phil MacIsaac (drums), Alvvays take the template laid out by the likes of Scottish stalwarts Teenage Fanclub, The Vaselines and Belle & Sebastian and fuse it with a strong sense of self and a unique personality. Each shimmering track on their debut full-length frames Rankin’s Atlantic-Canada bred melancholic melodies and unwavering voice with meticulous arrangements and needlepoint guitars. Flood your ears.
