Toronto dream pop quartet Alvvays is back with the second single from their upcoming Sophomore album, Antisocialites, titled "Dreams Tonite". On the single, Alvvays tones down the shoegaze influences that were found on first single "In Undertow" and trades them out for languid, romantic melodies that would be a perfect fit for a John Hughes movie. Molly Rankin sings of a naive, nascent relationship, and her earnest asking of "If I saw you in the street, would I have you in my dreams tonight?" atop plush synthesizers anchors a pillowy chorus. In many ways the track recalls fellow dreamy Canadian band TOPS. Both bands are at the top of their game right now, as Alvvays may be on their way to making one of the best albums of the Fall.
Antisocialites will be out September 8th on Polyvinyl. You can pre-order it here.
