Canadian fuzz-pop quintet Alvvays announce the UK release of their self-titled debut album, due 21st July 2014 via Transgressive Records. Produced by indie-guru Chad VanGaalen and mixed by Holy Fuck’s Graham Walsh and John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., Kurt Vile), the albums’ dazzling melodies and sun-splashed haze conceal themes of drunkenness, death and defeat.

The album is available to pre-order now (iTunes / Amazon LP / Amazon CD) and comes with an instant download of ‘Archie, Marry Me’.

Having already been chosen by NME as “a band everyone will be talking about after SXSW”, the band have also captured the attention of the likes of Pitchfork, DIY and Stereogum, with their tracks ‘Adult Diversion’ and ‘Archie, Marry Me’.

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 melancholic melodies and unwavering voice with meticulous arrangements and needlepoint guitars.

Having recently performed their debut UK shows in London and at the Great Escape Festival, Alvvays are set to return in the summer.

Alvvays is available 21st July on CD, LP and digital via Transgressive Records in the UK and 22nd July via Polyvinyl in the US. Pre-order: iTunes / Amazon LP / Amazon CD.
