Alvvays' self-titled debut garnered universal critical acclaim upon its release this summer, with Rolling Stone awarding the album 4/5 stars and calling it "a sharply drawn indie-pop wonder, steeped in romance, wit and melody." The band has been touring nonstop on the heels of that well-deserved attention, honing their sound into a smooth blend of 90s radio rock and classic surf pop. The impeccable acoustics of Gasa Gasa will be a perfect setting to soak in their layered sound.
Check out one of the best tracks from their album, "Archie Marry Me," below.
