Molly Rankin from Indie pop band Alvvays talks about their rise to #1 on the CMJ charts

Alvvays KVSCToronto indie rock band Alvvays released their debut album on Polyvinyl Records in July of 2014. Their self titled album rose to number one on the CMJ charts on August 5th, 2014. The album was recorded at fellow Canadian artist Chad VanGaalen’s home studio.

Alvvays crafts a sound that combines ‘60s surf pop with some darker ‘80s tones. Their album touches on issues like quarter-life crises, alcoholism, lost love, and insecurity.

KVSC Music Director Samantha “Sammich” McIntosh spoke with the band’s frontwoman Molly Rankin on the phone prior to their December 11th show at the Turf Club. McIntosh and Rankin discuss the themes and metaphors of the storytelling in the band’s lyrics. They also talk about the cookie monster, and Matthew McConaughey in space.
