About this item

The second album from Alvvays, Antisocialites, is set for release on Transgressive Records. Across ten tracks and thirty-three minutes, the Toronto-based group dive back into the deep end of reckless romance and altered dates.

To write Antisocialites, Rankin traveled to Toronto Island, working in an abandoned schoolroom by day and sleeping a few feet from shore at night. “I carried a small PA on the ferry in a wheelbarrow,” she recalls. “Every morning I would listen to my favourite records on the beach, then I'd write melodies and record demos in the classroom.”


Andy says: Alvvays burst onto the scene with the instant classic "Marry Me, Archie" and a debut record that grew into a word-of-mouth mini hit. It was mid-80's UK indie-pop all over again, but perfectly done. "Antisocialites" is cut from a similar cloth, but seemingly adding The Smiths and the Shop Assistants to their Mary Chain template. It works! It's brilliant!
