Alvvays casually put out 3 demos without telling anyone — hear them now

While some of us are probably still busy spinning Alvvays' 2017 sophomore album Antisocialites, the Toronto band has quietly released some demo tracks for attentive fans to discover.

Those B-side tracks — "Pecking Order," "Supine Equine" and "Echolalia" — surfaced today on Reddit, thanks to someone who purchased the band's latest album on cassette while they were on tour in Europe.

"Pecking Order" stays close to the band's brand of jangle pop-rock, whereas "Supine Equine" plays around with a spaced-out synth line and "Echolalia" embraces a more melancholic acoustic vibe. Though not entirely polished, each track is definitely worth a listen for fans who are eager for more new music from the band.

Listen to all three demos below. (Update: The videos have since been removed from YouTube.)
