Everyone’s favourite Canadians Alvvays are releasing their new album ‘Antisocialites’ in September, and have shared a second taster in the form of new single ‘Dreams Tonite’.
The new cut follows ‘In Undertow’ in previewing the follow-up to the band’s self-titled debut record, and is a predictably woozy, romantic cut that sees Molly Rankin at her most affecting.
The band are set to head out on a UK tour later this year, with a headline show at London’s KOKO. South London newcomers ALASKALASKA will support on a number of the regional dates. Listen to ‘Dreams Tonite’ and view the UK tour dates below.
