Hailing from Ireland, Ivy Nations are making their stamp on the music scene with their brand of contemporary indie-pop.
First time listeners will immediately draw comparison with the likes of Two Door Cinema Club, one of the band’s main influences, yet there is a depth of songwriting mature beyond the years of the band which is present in their latest single ‘Live By Design’.
The new track starts off sparse, with just a moody bass line and simple drum beat making for an atmospheric introduction to their sound that doesn’t reveal the whole picture. It isn’t until the song unravels that an electric flurry of well-crafted timbre reveals itself, showing exactly what these boys are capable of .
‘Live By Design’ explores contemporary issues too, inciting discussion on modern technology and its role within our lives. Consequently, Ivy Nations are making music for today’s audience and it’s not just about the sound, there’s substance behind the music too.
In the past, Ivy Nations have supported the likes of Kodaline, The Strypes and The Academic and so they’re no debutantes to the scene. Ivy Nations is a name you’ll be hearing very soon.
The single ‘Live By Design’ is out 7th April on Reckless records.
