Boston Calling 2018 Artists To Watch: Alvvays

ICYMI: Acentric Magazine is here to shine light on artists that fall under either category with this daily Artists To Watch series. From now until festival weekend, we’ll be counting down the days letting you in on who our most anticipated performers are this year, from the fairly local Weakened Friends to Grammy-Award-Winning rock-pop stars Paramore.

Artist/Band: Alvvays

Genre: Indie/Alternative

FFO: Best Coast, Beach Fossils

Playing On: Day 3

Why You Should Watch: It would be foolish to not have the dreamy, beach-rock group Alvvays on our Artists To Watch list. They’ve snagged spots on many major music festivals this year alongside Boston Calling–including Coachella (CA), Governors’ Ball (NYC), Shaky Knees, (GA), and plenty more. Their debut self-titled album (2014) saw great success and praise, and the follow up album, Antisocialites, released later last year only brought upon more of that. Their music is the perfect combination of soft and mellow yet upbeat and energetic. With the smoothness of vocalist/guitarist Molly Rankin’s voice and the intricacy of their twinkling guitar riffs, there is no doubt that we’ll be dancing away during their set on Sunday.
