Attention anyone still searching for this year’s song of the summer (no, we’re not settling for Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy”): local indie-pop five-piece Alvvays is bringing an album’s worth of contenders to the Horseshoe Tavern this week. Fans and critics have long been drooling in anticipation of the outfit’s self-titled debut, which was finally released in July. Its tunes deliver exactly the kind of beachy vibes our humid city needs right now. Crowned by the deadpan voice and sharp lyrics of frontwoman Molly Rankin (of The Rankin Family fame), the band’s nostalgic lo-fi sound calls to mind a jangling ’60s California-pop aesthetic while remaining entirely of-the-moment. Thursday’s show is sold out, but, as usual, there are ways (vvays?) to score last-minute tickets.

Aug. 14. $11.50. Horseshoe Tavern, 370 Queen St. W., 416-598-4226, horseshoetavern.com.
