Music today has been Canadian pop wonders Alvvays and their album Blue Rev (2022). They manage to sound nicely noisy and melodic at the same time, a kind of dream pop mix, The Smiths meets Lush via The Sundays with a denser backing. A great, melodic writing team in singer Molly Rankin and guitar player Alec O’Hanley. You might know them from 2014 and their debut single Archie, Marry Me from their first self-titled album, that song put them on the map but it’s this album that has attracted my attention and makes me want to go back and investigate their second album Antisocialites released in 2017, I missed it the first time around.
