Alvvays - 'Next of Kin' music video

Alvvays make the kind of slack-founded dream pop that drives us absolutely wild.

These Canadians are also kicking off 2015 with a headline tour that includes nine dates in the UK. Single 'Next of Kin' is out now.

It's been a pretty big year for Alvvays and their loveable breezy indie pop - with radio play and a debut showered with praise. Their other single 'Marry Me Archie' got me hooked, and the sweetness of 'Next of Kin' has had a similar effect; the lightness of the vocals and the watery guitar riffs covering some pretty dark lyrics. The video itself was directed by Connor Gilhooly and combines filmed footage with stop frame animation, paintings and drawings.

NO ONE CARES WHAT YOU THINK, BUT LEAVE A COMMENT ANYWAY

The B-side of their recent scorcher of a single, 'Vent' was filmed at Hermitage Works Studios by John Clay AKA Clark Kent's Rock n Roll Revue.

We're addicted to this sneakily little funky number. And we definitely want to get high with all our mothers.

Those pesky Table Scraps have written a slacker anthem, and created a visual prayer to the beloved loser gods to go along with it.
