Alvvays is a Canadian indie pop band whose third album, Blue Rev, was not meant to take five years, but after starting the project in the wake of their 2017 release, the band embarked on a creative journey. Working with Canadian Shawn Everett in a Los Angeles studio, they discarded meticulous plans and opted for a raw, tape-to-tape recording process. The album's core was captured in two full takes, followed by meticulous refinement in collaboration with Everett. The hybrid approach, with increased contributions from keyboardist Kerri MacLellan, led to a record filled with twists and surprises, showcasing the band's evolution and willingness to break patterns. Blue Rev was described as fun, often funny and noted as marking a high point in the band’s musical journey.
