On tour

Paul Stimpson, Features Writer

After doing the rounds of the UK festivals this summer, Canadian indie band Alvvays are kicking off a full length UK tour at the end of August.

Molly Rankin's soft vocals and jangling guitars make for a pleasant listen, and the band have a shoegazing quality that still manages to captivate the listener.

With that said, their strong point is their faster, more upbeat songs such as Archie, Marry Me and Adult Diversion.

Coming from the famous folk singing family The Rankins, Molly was always destined to be in music. After flirting with folk and releasing her own solo album, Alvvays were formed shortly after.

Alec O'Hanley helped Molly out on her solo album, and they both realized their potential and chemistry, which led to the formation of Alvvays and then their critically acclaimed self-titled debut album.

Before touring the length and breadth of the country, Alvvays will appear at Reading & Leeds festivals.
