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.
