Alvvays have shared two new singles “Belinda Says” and “Very Online Guy.” Both tracks are off their full-length Blue Rev, which drops on October 7, 2022 via Polyvinyl Records. “Belinda Says” pays homage to pop icon Belinda Carlisle referencing her iconic 1980’s hit “Heaven Is A Place On Earth.” The song, whose lyrics reference the album title (“blue rev behind the rink”).

Alvvays are gifting us with a double song release showing the depth of Blue Rev by also releasing “Very Online Guy.” The song, which touches on internet ‘reply guys,’ is lyrically one of the most tongue-in-cheek yet from Molly Rankin’s whip-smart treasure trove of lyrics. Rankin and Alec O’Hanley have also put on their director hats, teaming up with director and media artist Colby Richardson to make the video for “Very Online Guy.” The video was filmed with an old Handycam and the results are an analogue fantasy land.

The band had this to say about the songs: “Two new lambs for the cultural volcano! One more sweet slurp of alcopop dedicated to the girls wiping tables called ‘Belinda Says’ and the dial-up electronic dream ‘Very Online Guy.’

We painted and shot the Belinda Says video in our living room. We directed a mosaic-mode vid for ‘V.O.G’. with our video guru friend Colby. This was easily the funnest thing we’ve ever shot. Enjoy our clunky low-bit collage of aliased key clacking and step-dance scramble on your CRTs.”
