Plaintive indie pop that pulls at the heart-strings...
Alvvays

Alvvays have shared plaintive indie pop charmer 'Dreams Tonite'.

The Canadian group will release new album 'Antisocialites' on September 8th, and the previews are coming thick and fast.

New song 'Dreams Tonite' went online a few moments ago, and it's a wonderfully languid piece of beautifully composed indie pop.

The simple repeating phrase becomes a hook for Molly Rankin to explore heartache and self-doubt, while the spiralling vocals are reminiscent of Liz Fraser.

The song emerged from lengthy solo sessions Molly would undergo on Toronto Island, gradually pulling together new material in an abandoned schoolroom.

“I carried a small PA on the ferry in a wheelbarrow,” she recalls. “Every morning I would listen to my favourite records on the beach, then I'd write melodies and record demos in the classroom.”

Tune in now.
