Alvvays debuted on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this week (January 10) — you can watch the moment below.
The band performed “Belinda Says” from their latest album “Blue Rev” ahead of their March US tour.
The song, which is a tribute to eighties singer Belinda Carlisle’s hit “Heaven Is A Place On Earth”, was performed at the show along with the string section.
Carlisle later tweeted about the performance, saying she “didn’t know” about the song before they appeared on the show.
The musician wrote on Twitter: “First of all, I [love] this song and had no idea about it! It’s amazing and I’m so flattered by @alvvaysband.”
