ALVVAYS debuts new video for "Dreams Tonite"
ALVVAYS

ALVVAYS have sharedD their new video for “Dreams Tonite,” Matt Johnson, who directed the video, had this to say: “The first thing I thought when Alvvays played “Dreams Tonite” for me in their studio (which is packed wall to wall with gear built before they were born) was that this music is from another time. It sounds like a rediscovered classic that was way ahead of its time, so the video had to be about time travel.

I got addicted to 60’s film aesthetics making my last movie and this was the perfect excuse to revisit that world. The footage shot by the National Film Board during Expo67 is an unknown masterpiece of Canadian cinema – of course we had to hide Alvvays in it. By using the same cameras and film as the Nfb in ’67 we found a way to put Molly and company on stage at the biggest festival our country has ever seen. See if you can find them all!”

The band tell us, “Canada was at its coolest fifty years ago in Montreal at Expo ’67. The National Film Board caught a young country at its most iconic on sweet saturated 16mm. We fetishize retro-futurism and are thrilled our buddy Matt Johnson was able to facilitate our half-century temporal trip back to peak pop and op. And this video introduces our new drummer, so please meet Sheridan.”
