ALVVAYS RELEASE NEW SONG “DREAMS TONITE” Antisocialites out September 8 on Pod via Inertia

The sophomore album from Alvvays titled Antisocialites is set for release on Friday September 8. Across its 10 tracks and 33 minutes, the Toronto-based group dive back into the deep end of reckless romance and altered dates. Perversely enjoyable dark drama springs from lead singer Molly Rankin‘s phonetic twists, quick-sung rhymes and irreverent syllable-play.

After releasing crowd-pleaser “In Undertow” last month, the band have today given us another track titled “Dreams Tonite” which dives deeper into the emotional territory Alvvays are known for.  Rankin sings “So morose for me, seeing ghosts of me, writing oaths to me,” on the Cocteau-pop stunner, the song from which the album’s name is derived. “In fluorescent light, antisocialites watch a wilting flower.
To write Antisocialites, Rankin traveled to Toronto Island – working in an abandoned classroom by day and sleeping a few feet from shore at night – to avoid a stifling heat wave in the city. “I carried a small PA on the ferry in a wheelbarrow,” she recalls. “Every morning I would listen to my favorite records on the beach, then I’d write melodies and record demos in the classroom.” After tracking with keyboardist Kerri MacLellan and bassist Brian Murphy at Kingsize in LA, Rankin and guitarist Alec O’Hanley continued recording and mixing in their Toronto basement.
