ALVVAYS – ” Belinda Says / Very Online Guy “

Posted: September 23, 2022 in MUSIC

Alvvays Pay Homage to The Go-Go’s’ Belinda Carlisle on “Belinda Says”, The dream pop band also releases cheeky ode to reply guys with new song “Very Online Guy” , With their comeback album “Blue Rev” arriving soon on October 7th, the Canadian quintet Alvvays have released two more singles in anticipation: “Very Online Guy” and “Belinda Says.” The former is a quixotic, guitar-laced love letter to Belinda Carlisle, lead singer of the Go-Go’s, while the latter is lead vocalist Molly Rankin’s cheeky, distorted ode to reply guys.

Both songs come with brand new music videos, each co-directed by Colby Anderson. “Very Online Guy” masquerades like an 8-bit video game quest, while “Belinda Says” features some stunning, abstract visuals from Anderson.

“Two new lambs for the cultural volcano! One more sweet slurp of alcopop dedicated to the girls wiping tables called ‘Belinda Says’ and the dial-up electronic dream ‘Very Online Guy,’” the band said in a statement. “We painted and shot the ‘Belinda Says’ video in our living room. We directed a mosaic-mode vid for ‘V.O.G’. with our video guru friend Colby. This was easily the funnest thing we’ve ever shot. Enjoy our clunky low-bit collage of aliased key clacking and step-dance scramble on your CRTs.”

From “Blue Rev”, Out October 7, 2022
