The 2014 self-titled debut from Toronto melody makers Alvvays was pop perfection.  It gave us the brilliant single “Archie, Marry Me” which we still play on WFUV.

The band is back with another great collection of songs, Antisocialites, that includes a fantastic ode to Jim Reid of the Jesus and Mary Chain. There is dark humor in their lyrics and joyful jangle in their music. We were pleased that they made it back to Studio A for a return visit.
