    What kind of name is"Alvavays" anyways?

    • 3 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      it's just pronounced "always."
      2010s indie trend was to name your band something random and then just turn one of the letters into two letters so if somebody googles your band, it comes up first.
      >Wavves
      >Alvvays
      >Cherry Glazerr
      etc.

        I swear I read something a couple years back that they hate their band name and wish they could rename it.

          I got confused by how they worded that too, but they're just saying double letters. Not necessarily double letters to make a new letter like Alvvays

    Wait really? Source? Hype as fuck if true. They're the only band from the 2010s dreampop/indieshit wave that I like. As for my favourite song, it's Saved by a waif. Antisocialites in general is a really excellent album, even better than their debut. It took time to grow on me though

      I agree but then again let's not romanticize the 60s and bands putting out an album every six months because the record label wanted to keep the hype machine going so most of those albums were garbage or had one good song on them. that's what killed Steppenwolf.

      They were the only band of Indie pop- clairo mid2010's to release full albums worthy of quality songs. Meanwhile the like of Boy Pablo and Cuco were indie white boy hipsters spotify darlings they NEVER release a worth listening
      One hit wonders are not remembered as the same vain a big hitters like Led Zeppelin. They took the sound of the happy upbeat surf rock of the very late 2000's like surf curse and wavves, etc and the 2010's vibrato chorus 'chill' slightly psychodelic sound of MacDemarco combined to the twee sounds of the original indie rock of Beat Happening to use them to a full extent.
      They released great albums, were more upbeat and punkish than the fake indie of the last two decades and the songs were beautiful AND fun.
      they also had a odd punkish Canadian feel to them that is wierd as it sounds
      Look at way Molly treats her guitars and you'll get what I mean. Meanwhile the typical MAC-clone had pristine clean-never-played-once new fender that just has a feel of fake rich kid to them.
      They are great, they took the best sounds of indie of the lasts two decades and made full albums of catchy sounding cute songs while the average indie kid release one or two singles of chasing trends if they were lucky

    Their appearance on Fishcentre is worth checking out too if you're a fan: it features what is (imo) the best version of Not my Baby

      it's quite easy to get praise, or at the very least respect, on LULZ. the board seems to dislike bands/artists that are attention whores and motormouths and prefer those who just go about their business like pros. it probably also helps that alvvays fans appear to be well-adjusted people in general, so there's no baggage there with tiktok audiences and the like

          she does sound a bit more lively on antisocialites, but i like her voice a lot more on s/t. maybe it's because i like that album more, but it feels like her voice is always slathered in slight distortion or reverb, i always think of her voice on the ones who love you

              definitely the highest notes on an alvvays song i'm pretty sure, molly definitely runs out of breath during live performances it, it's kind of cute. i think that's also why they don't really do that one live.

              I always forget that Chad VanGaalen produced that album. He makes some pretty good music himself. I doubt they make another album like that though

              yeah, never heard chad's music but i was aware he has the producer credit on s/t. i always felt he did an amazing job on s/t and his absence is felt on antisocialites

                oh yeah, i also forgot to mention the weird slightly distorted reverby voice she has on dives/red planet/ones who love you is the reason why i got into alvvays. everything about that album sounds so nice
