Track Of The Day #551: Alvvays – Archie, Marry Me


Late to the party on this one I’m afraid but Canadian’s Alvvays have put our heart under lock and key with ‘Archie, Marry Me’ an attitude dripping Molly Rankin fronted slice of heart bursting new wave pop, daubed with lashings of conflicted literate lovelorn loveliness. It had us flinging open the windows and punching the air! Take us we are YOURS!

Fast-rising Canadian dreamers Alvvays’s Chad VanGaalen produced debut self-titled album came out last week and they have announced UK and Irish shows in October alongside Domino Records’ Real Estate. The band will also return to the UK shortly to play a headline show at London’s Birthdays on August 5th before performing an in-store set at Rough Trade East on August 6th – with another very special UK appearance soon to be announced.
