Alvvays have shared two new album previews, ‘Belinda Says‘ and ‘Very Online Guy‘, from their third LP, ‘Blue Rev’.
The 14-track record arrives October 7th, with previous singles ‘Pharmacist’ and ‘Easy On Your Own?’ giving us a good idea of the album’s direction.
The two newly unveiled songs both come with videos co-directed by the band.
On the fresh cuts, Alvvays say: “Two new lambs for the cultural volcano! One more sweet slurp of alcopop dedicated to the girls wiping tables called ‘Belinda Says’ and the dial-up electronic dream ‘Very Online Guy.’”
“We painted and shot the ‘Belinda Say’s’ video in our living room,” they share on the video direction process. “We directed a mosaic-mode vid for ‘V.O.G.’ with our video guru friend Colby. This was easily the funnest thing we’ve ever shot. Enjoy our clunky low-bit collage of aliased key clacking and step-dance scramble on your CRTs.”
