Modern Stage



Sunday, Apr. 30, 2017, 7:30pm – Modern Stage presented by KXT 91.7
Indie Pop, Indie Rock

Pop in the cassette and head to the coast. Persuasive melodies and disarming lyrics inhabit the fuzzy-edged aesthetic of this jangle pop quintet. Pronounced “always,” Alvvays is easy to love for their starry-eyed anthems and unrequited reverie. The Canadian band deftly employs repurposed sounds and psychedelic ‘60s surf rock, dosing out twee-free charm and cinematic emotion. Balanced between a feeling of freedom and certainty, hope and pain, confusion and clarity – Alvvays’ sound drifts in an ambiguous state with which many quarter-lifers will identify.

Why the Music Matters: Dream-weaver frontwoman Molly Rankin is the musical heiress of Canada’s preeminent family traveling band, The Rankin Family. With a beguiling blend of strength and vulnerability, the songstress issues forth bracingly honest, heart-on-her-sleeve vocals – and she’s been tagged as music’s next “It Girl” by many in the industry.

Sounds a Little Like: The Cranberries, Beach House, Best Coast
