Archie, Marry Me - Single

After releasing their first ridiculously catchy twee single "Adult Diversion" and generating some considerable buzz from a notable SXSW slot (from the NME no less), Toronto’s Alvvays will be on everyone’s radar soon enough. New Soundcloud-released single “Archie, Marry Me” may tip even more fans to their talents; the fuzz-and reverb drenched heartbreaker is an indie-pop gem, even at first listen. And lead singer/songwriter Molly Rankin knows a thing or two about penning pop hits – she’s a descendant of Canadian folk icons The Rankin Family. Don’t be surprised if this bittersweet track emerges as an indie anthem to the summer.

“Archie, Marry Me” will appear on the band’s forthcoming Chad VanGaalen-produced self-titled debut, expected this summer from Polyvinyl Records.
