Alvvays – In Undertow

Funny how certain words, that are not often used in everyday language, can suddenly pop up like weeds. In recent months, ‘undertow’ is such a word. Pet Shop Boys released a single with that title, as did the bands CUT_ and Panama. One of the stand-out tracks on Dan Auerbach’s latest album is named Undertow as well, and now Alvvays comes up with their single In Undertow…

Almost three years ago, the Canadian indie-pop darlings released their self-titled debut album and now they’re back with new music. We’ll have to wait ‘till 8 September before their new album Antisocialites drops, but until then, we can enjoy the first single.

In Undertow is a break-up song. “You made a mistake you’d like to erase,” Molly Rankin sings in a shoegaze kind of way, “and I understand.” But with determination she adds: “There’s no turning back after what’s been said.”
