The Alvvays are a unique and creative band that expresses happiness through writing their songs. During the past couple of months, I came along this Indie-Rock Pop band that I thought was pretty cool. The band’s name is  Always, they mixed up by spelling it with two “V’s” instead of a “W.”

Alvvays is a Canadian Indie Pop band created in 2011. Their way of playing and creating music has a strong Celtic melody, that feels calm and relaxing once you start listening to it. When I listen to the Alvvays music I think about when I was a little kid, and how the music has such a happy tone to it. 

Some of my favorite songs are “Party Police” and “Archie, Marry Me.” These two songs are from their first album created in 2014. In 2018 the band was nominated for their song “Dreams Tonite” by the SOCAN Songwriting Prize and Antisocialites was shortlisted for the 2018 Polaris Music Prize and the band also won a Juno Award for the Year’s Alternative Album. The band’s top listened songs are “Dreams Tonite”, ”Archie, Marry Me”, “Not My Baby”, “In Undertow”, and “Adult Diversion.”  The Alvvays have over one million monthly listeners on Spotify.
