Loved Alvvays' debut album from last year -- great tunes with a heavy early Fannies influence. I just stumbled across this great piece written by a member of the band writing about the high esteem they hold for "Grand Prix": http://www.clashmusic.com/features/spot ... grand-prix

It was a power-pop clinic. Lovelorn thoughtful clichéplay, huge hard-panned guitars, machine gun snare fills, syrup-soaked melody and harmony - it was all there.

'Grand Prix' is full of that semi-requited chocolate that glues great bittersweet pop together. The sighing romanticism in 'that summer feeling is gonna fly, always try to keep the feeling inside' is a sentimental lift of Jonathan Richman's seasonal ache. Residents of northern climes tend to cling to their summers because they're too damn short.

'Don't Look Back' tucks a refinement of that advice behind a Chilton-ian offer from the devoted badass: "I'd steal a car to drive you home, don't look back on empty feeling." These guys wrote lyrics you could live inside and didn't hesitate to impart advice, but they did it with a light touch.

That's a nice read - thanks!
