Toronto Life - - Culture -

Three years ago, the East Coast out­fit Alv­vays hi­jacked Toronto air­waves with their out-of-the­blue self-ti­tled de­but, a lo-fi mas­ter­piece filled with beachy gui­tar riffs and front wo­man Molly Rankin’s dispassionate drawl. Where that record was the sonic equiv­a­lent of a fun-filled sum­mer fling, its melan­choly fol­low-up, An­ti­so­cialites, is like an au­tumn breakup (check out the wist­ful, surf rock–in­flected sin­gle, “In Un­der­tow”). Fans will have plenty of time to learn the lyrics be­fore the band’s four-night Mod Club marathon in De­cem­ber.
