Alongside the tour announcement, the band have also shared the video for ‘Many Mirrors’ created by video game developer Eric Barone. “It’s not every day I get an email from a cool band like Alvvays,” Eric says. “When I learned they were fans of Stardew Valley, it felt like a real honor. The whole album is fantastic, but the song ‘Many Mirrors’ had a pure, adventurous energy to it that really resonated with me. I took that feeling, and used it to create a visual world in my mind’s eye… and that’s what ultimately turned into this video. I had a lot of fun making it, and I’m really happy to be able to contribute, in a small way, to the band’s story!”
In our review of their latest album ‘Blue Rev’, we said, “On ‘Blue Rev’, the band revisit what makes Alvvays albums so special - the sugary melodies, the aching yearning of some select lyrics, and the equally witty and deft verses of the others - before breaking it all down and building it back up with even more flavour.”
