The brilliant Toronto-based quintet pushes the boundaries of power pop
WhenMon. 5 Jun, 2023
"a triumph of power pop, a densely layered, witty, blithe, and beautiful record that sets a new benchmark for the genre"
Quality allows for experimentation, and Alvvays is proof of that. The Toronto-based quintet returns with "Blue Rev" and it was more than worth the wait. Orchestrated by star producer Shawn Everett (Julian Casablancas, The War on Drugs, Alabama Shakes), it is a monumental piece of power pop! For Alvvays do not follow the rules... they make the rules. And this time, they incorporated some elements of shoegaze and 90's indie into their noise-rock sound. Named after a Canadian drink made of sugar, caffeine, and vodka, "Blue Rev" charms with its joyful melodies and bursts with its unique structures and harmonic experiments. Receiving accolades from Pitchfork (8.8 Best New Music), The Guardian, NME, DIY, and Stereogum, Alvvays seems to have reached the top. Do not miss their triumphant lesson of power pop at Botanique!
Ex-Vöid are a “Power Pop” group who make music so jangly, so melodic, that it could be considered nationally threatening and potentially illegal under current U.K legislation. Critics have compared them to Teenage Fanclub, The Lemonheads & Lucinda Williams , but they claim to exclusively take influence from Black Sabbath’s “Into the Void”, The Raincoat’s “The Void” and the Washington DC hardcore punk group VOID.
