“Blue Rev was worth the wait —
a boisterous pack of indie-rock winners, instantly lovable.”

“The Toronto band’s third album is a triumph of power pop, a densely layered, witty, blithe, and beautiful record that sets a new benchmark for the genre.”
Pitchfork (Best New Music 8.8)


“‘Blue Rev’ pushes the band’s sound toward dreamier and noisier frontiers, 
while deepening its narrative-driven songwriting.”
The New York Times


“…their best, most exciting work to date.”


“…a literary shredder, a white-knuckled daydream, a mild-mannered barnstormer whose songs deftly tease out complex emotional threads from the smallest details.”

Across Alvvays’ first two albums (2014’s self-titled debut and 2017’s Antisocialites), the Toronto quintet have perfected their blend of indie pop and sweeping shoegaze anchored by lush melodies and masterful songwriting. Tracks like “Adult Diversion” and “Archie, Marry Me” introduced the world to their modern classics, with the latter landing on Rolling Stone’s Best Songs of the 2010’s list. Alvvays’ music has been streamed hundreds of millions of times around the globe, as well as featured in outlets such as The New York Times, Pitchfork, Billboard, and many more.

On the band’s third endeavor, Blue Rev, Alvvays showcase their most refined work yet – an exquisite collection of songs that are bigger, brighter, noisier, and more ambitious than anything the band has recorded previously. Co-Produced by Shawn Everett (Adele, Kacey Musgraves, The Killers), the album is sonically tremendous, gracefully weaving between screaming bursts of distorted feedback and rich string arrangements. The flawless interplay between vocalist/guitarist Molly Rankin and guitarist Alec O’Hanley is immediate and unparalleled. Guitars chime and jangle with ease while Rankin delivers some of her strongest melodic performances heard in the band’s catalog to date. Dynamic and gripping, Blue Rev hints at feelings of longing, sorrow, playfulness, and contemplation – it’s another heavenly glimpse into what makes Alvvays one of the best and most captivating rock bands of the last decade.
