Meet Inertia’s newest signing, Alvvays

“This record is a fantasy breakup arc and my life nearly imitated art.”-
Molly Rankin, Alvvays lead singer

Canadian jangly dream-pop quartet Alvvays are due to release their second full-length, Antisocialites, on Friday September 8 on Pod via Inertia Music / Rhythmethod. Listen to first single “In Undertow” now.

The album is the much-anticipated follow-up to Alvvays’ critically acclaimed self-titled debut which received accolades from Pitchfork, NPR, Rolling Stone and more. Across its 10 tracks and 33 minutes, Antisocialites sees the Toronto-based group dive back into the deep-end of reckless romance and altered dates. Ice cream truck jangle collides with prismatic noise pop while Molly Rankin‘s wit is refracted through crystalline surf counterpoint. Through thoughtful consideration in basement and abroad, Alvvays has renewed its Scot-pop vows with a powerful new collection of manic emotional collage.

After posting a cryptic cartoon for fans last week, the group today released “In Undertow”, a strum-n-thrummer breakup fantasy that is both crushing and charming for its level-headedness. “You find a wave and try to hold on for as long as you can, you made a mistake you’d like to erase and I understand,” sings Rankin, her voice full longing, not for another person necessarily, but for what to do next. “Meditate, play solitaire, take up self-defense,” Molly continues, laundry-listing some strategies for moving on. “What’s next for you and me? I’ll take suggestions,” she deadpans under crashing waves of Farfisa and feedback.
