Albums:
Alvvays is a Canadian alternative/indie rock band. They're probably my favorite band in that genre right now and are easily one of my favorite bands overall. They play chilled out modern alternative rock with a hint of a melancholy vibe. They almost sound like something I would have heard in the '90s had I been into music back then. I love Molly's gentle, soothing vocals. They're one of my go-to bands whenever I'm in the mood for something that isn't quite as frenetic or angry as the hard rock and metal that I listen to.

They were one of the first bands that I got into when I started mellowing out and exploring this style of music a couple of years ago. I started out with their self-titled album because that's all that was out at the time, and it's very, very good. It's just so immediately accessible yet manages to hold your attention from beginning to end, which is really hard to pull off in my opinion. Their newest album, Antisocialites, took me a while to get into at first, but once it finally grabbed ahold of me, it wouldn't let go. Just a great album by a great band.

This was the first song of theirs that I heard. It's the opening track from their debut album. I was immediately intrigued because the video looked and the music sounded like something I would have heard and seen as a kid.


This is the second track off of their debut album and is one of their more popular songs. So good.


This is my favorite song from their debut album. Once I heard this, I knew I had found one of my new favorite bands.


Here's the first single and opening track from Antisocialites. I couldn't wait for that album to come out after hearing this.


And last but not least, here's my favorite song from Antisocialites, though trying to pick a favorite song of theirs is like being a parent and trying to pick your favorite child. I love everything about it, from the soft, melancholy opening to the slow fade out at the end.
