Stream Antisocialites via NPR First Listen

“For all the noisy textures and shimmering sing-alongs on Antisocialites, Alvvays seem intent on masking pain while convincing others, and perhaps themselves, that everything’s fine. It’s a tricky balancing act, but that’s what makes this band so damn endearing.”- NPR

 Early Acclaim For Antisocialites:

“Alvvays never second-guess their core strength: anthemic, arm-swaying hooks that aim for the stars even when the sky is gray.” Pitchfork

“Canadian guitar romantics Alvvays mix pleasant noises and chill dejection, and the result is a perfect indie-rock lullaby.” Rolling Stone on “In Undertow”

“Shellacking a tight pop number in feedback is a worn recipe for success, but in the hands of Molly Rankin, Alvvay’s noisy rock is an unexpected gift.” New York Magazine

“Light, literal dream pop that’s almost too pure for this world.” SPIN

“The band has kept their rivers of reverb, which sometimes makes them sound as though they’re playing to an empty middle-school gymnasium, an image that fittingly blends sweetness with melancholy.” Vulture

“Lead single “In Undertow” contains all of the elements that were initially so charming about the Toronto five-piece blown up to fuzzy and dreamy new heights.” Stereogum

“”In Undertow”, “Dreams Tonite”, and the as-yet-unheard “Plimsoll Punks” are as bright and charming as everything we’ve come to expect from the band.” Consequence of Sound

“The great thing about Alvvays is that they know what they do well – create objectively good, beautiful indie pop – and they are evidently doing it again with Antisocialites” Uproxx

“Impossibly bright, effects-heavy guitar lines swirl around Molly Rankin’s breathy and beautiful vocals, combining to create an intoxicating whole.” Paste Magazine

“A very nice dose of their melodic, emotional indie pop, complete with a shoegazy guitar solo.” Brooklyn Vegan on “In Undertow”

“The magnificent Alvvays and their absolutely beautiful sound are back with “In Undertow.” It’s a soulful, melodic masterpiece.”  

Impose

“More lovelorn sun-spotted jangly jams done in only the charming way the Toronto quartet know how.” My Old Kentucky Blog
