Alice Ivy drops new video for ‘Close To You’, filmed in Geelong


We all love them – and with good bloody reason, they are cute AF.

Alice Ivy really loves her dog, Lexie, in particular. She loves her so much, in fact, that she got a tattoo of her eating a bag of chicken nuggets on her arm. We’re not joking – what a legend.

If that weren’t already the best thing ever, Lexie now stars in Alice’s brand-new video for her killer latest single, ‘Close To You’ feat. Flint Eastwood. The clip follows both Alice and Lexie as they have a fun-packed adventure day across the sunny shores of their hometown of Geelong – taking long walks by the beach, saying hello to other doggos, eating ice creams… Heaven. Check it below.

‘Close To You’ has received nothing but praise since its release back in February. The song has garnered widespread praise from music media outlets, as well as picking up high rotation on triple j, who have long been supporters of Alice Ivy, enhancing her reputation as one most exciting, rising musical talents in the country.

Having released her debut album I’m Dreaming in February 2018 (which was recently long listed for the prestigious Australian Music Prize), electronic producer Ivy has performed more than 50 shows worldwide including Australian national tours with Flight Facilities, Vera Blue & The Jungle Giants, SXSW 2018, Falls Festival & Splendour In The Grass.

Alice Ivy’s eclectic signature sound spans sample-influenced soul, hip-hop and electronic pop that she brings to life live as a multi-instrumentalist. With a trio of past singles on high rotation at triple j and a reputation for explosive live performances, Alice Ivy is fast becoming recognised as one of Australia’s most versatile and exhilarating artists.

On top of all this, tickets for Alice Ivy’s ‘Close To You’ National Tour are selling gangbusters. Supported by her friend, Like A Version collaborator, and the most fearsome force in Australian hip hop, Miss Blanks, the tour will kick off May 17 in Adelaide, and will head to capital and major cities around the country. She’ll hit up Northcote Social Club, Melbourne on Friday May 31. Tickets are on sale now here!
