Keanu Reeves Reveals His Favorite Rock Band


Hollywood actor Keanu Reeves recently revealed his current musical trends. He went on to name his favorite band.

Keanu Reeves picks Alvvays

Alvvays is a promising name in the indie rock realm. In an interview with NME, the actor chose the Alvvays as his favorite, discussing their latest album “Blue Rev”:

“I like me a good pop song and I like me a kind of inventiveness in it. And I think the lead singer [Molly Rankin], she’s great…And I love the textures in it. I mean, I love bass guitar and drums and I like their energy.”

Alvvays were formed in 2011, and currently have 3 albums under their belt, rising to mainstream popularity with their sophomore record, 2017’s “Antisocialites”.

When asked about what he’s been listening to lately, Reeves mentioned the band’s 2022 release Blue Rev, which we named one of our Top 50 Albums of last year. Though he owns it digitally, the actor expressed a strong desire to have it “on LP.” Despite his virtual ownership, he joked about the album being his “favorite album to be.”

Reeves also shared his adoration for the band on his Reddit AMA earlier this month, citing Bill Evans and Daughter among other artists in his rotation.

Blue Rev is the third studio album from the band and received critical acclaim upon its release for trading the jangly pop they first hit the scene with for noisier tones. Alvvays are heading out on the second leg of their 2023 tour in May, featuring some co-headlining dates with Alex G.  Tickets are available now via StubHub, where orders are 100% guaranteed through StubHub’s FanProtect program.
