Alvvays Debuts “Easy On Your Own?”
Alvvays recently announced their first new album in five years, the band’s LP Blue Rev will be released on October 7th via Polyvinyl. Today the band have shared the second single “Easy On Your Own?” The track follows previous single “Pharmacist“.
in October 2021, when they arrived at a Los Angeles studio with producer Shawn Everett, he urged them to forget the careful planning they’d done and just play the stuff, straight to tape. On the second day, they ripped through Blue Rev front-to-back twice, pausing only 15 seconds between songs and only 30 minutes between full album takes. And then, as Everett has done on recent albums by The War on Drugs and Kacey Musgraves, he spent an obsessive amount of time alongside Alvvays filling in the cracks, roughing up the surfaces, and mixing the results.
