Alvvays have posted a video for Dreams Tonite with their new album Antisocialites now out.
“Canada was at its coolest 50 years ago in Montreal at Expo ’67,” the band say. “The National Film Board caught a young country at its most iconic on sweet saturated 16mm.”
“We fetishize retro-futurism and are thrilled our buddy Matt Johnson was able to facilitate our half-century temporal trip back to peak pop and op. And this video introduces our new drummer, so please meet Sheridan.”
“The first thing I thought when Alvvays played ‘Dreams Tonite’ for me in their studio (which is packed wall to wall with gear built before they were born) was that this music is from another time,” director Matt Johnson adds. “It sounds like a rediscovered classic that was way ahead of its time, so the video had to be about time travel.”
