7digital What we said: If ‘Weird Science’ was real and you could design your ideal C86-inspired band, the results would probably sound something like Alvvays. Hearts and reference points stitched neatly on their satchels, the Toronto-based quintet marry the jangling chords of Teenage Fanclub and sun-drenched solos of Real Estate, with Camera Obscura-esque vocal cadences and the world-weary lyrical wit of Belle and Sebastian. In fact, there are so many influences in play, the only thing that prevents their debut feeling derivative is the calibre of songwriting. If you can prise yourself away from album standout 'Archie, Marry Me', you’ll find plenty more to fall for, and, like all the best crushes, it’s an infatuation that only deepens with time.
