Canada’s musical climate got a couple of degrees cooler this year with the debut self titled release of Toronto’s Alvvays. During their journey through Seattle, the band turned the KEXP live room into cosmic ocean of tranquility with their gleaming melodies, luxurious tones and the haunting beauty of Molly Rankin’s vocals. The sparse guitar lines and fuzzed electronic splashes on "Dives" take on a peculiar kaleidoscopic feel while the cozy bass on the sentimental 80’s style "Marry Me Archie" is as comforting and reminiscent as a John Hughes movie night. Watch the full set and take your ears on a journey.
