Alvvays has shared wonderful new song 'Plimsole Punks' - tune in now.
The title is a nod towards 'Part Time Punks' by the Television Personalities, while the titular plimsole was of course the footwear of choice for any self-respecting 80s indie kid.
From the lilting guitar line down to that savage breakdown this is - musically speaking - an absolute joy, but as ever Alvvays are willing to let an element of darkness creep into the lyricism.
"You're getting me down, getting me down," sings Molly Rankin, a dissection of the self-righteous and the condescending.
Check it out now.
'Antisocialites' will be released on September 8th.
