    Canada’s Alvvays have a new album on the way called Antisocialities. Due out September 8th via Polyvinyl, it marks their sophomore record following their 2014 self-titled debut. Last month, the indie pop outfit shared the LP’s lead single, a wistful yet infectious number called “In Undertow”. Now, the official music video has been revealed.

    Directed by Joe Garrity, it’s a fuzzy, dreamlike watch starring singer Molly Rankin, who describes it as “aquacosmic psych meets public access TV.” There are kaleidoscopic colors as well as dizzying camera tricks involving mirrored images. “I’m aware of my own drowning fixation and fascinated by that bizarre lunar-tidal relationship,” Rankin explains in a press statement. “We’ve already filled our water video quota. Space is a trippier ocean.” Watch it up above.

    In related news, Alvvays have announced Jay Som and Nap Eyes as the openers for their upcoming fall US tour.
