Canadian Indie-pop legends Alvvays follow on from their fantastic album ‘Blue Rev’ with exciting news of a UK tour and a video for ‘Many Mirrors’

If you’ve been keeping up with music whatsoever this year, there’s a good chance you will have heard ‘Blue Rev’. It is one of the year’s best albums, filled with pop bangers, emotional moments and the incredible energy of Alvvays

It only seems right that they want to show it off to the world. Following on from several dates in the US and Canada, the band will be hitting Europe, playing in Spain, France, Belgium, Germany and lots of venues over here in the UK too. 

Along with this exciting news, Alvvays have dropped the video for ‘Many Mirrors’, a collaboration with Stardew Valley creator Eric Barone. The video perfectly matches the energy, pop sensibility and fun of the single as its adorable characters venture through many mirrors to discover new worlds. Barone noted that he was drawn to the “pure, adventurous energy” of the track and this shines through. 

If you’ve been loving this album as much as us, you need to see Alvvays live.
