With their critically acclaimed sophomore album Antisocialites released last week, Alvvays today share the video for album cut Dreams Tonite. The video, which also introduces the band’s new drummer Sheridan, uses footage from the Montreal Expo67. The band explain:
Canada was at its coolest fifty years ago in Montreal at Expo ’67. The National Film Board caught a young country at its most iconic on sweet saturated 16mm. We fetishize retro-futurism and are thrilled our buddy Matt Johnson was able to facilitate our half-century temporal trip back to peak pop and op.
Antisocialites is out now via all platforms. The album’s title is derived from the lyrics of Dreams Tonite as frontwoman Molly Rankin sings “In fluorescent light, antisocialites watch a wilting flower.”
Alvvays will be embarking this summer on an extensive world tour with many dates already sold out. Supports will be ALASKALASKA, Jay Som and Nap Eyes All dates can be found below.
