Ivey: Gorgeous

Gold Coast indie pop musos are back with their sophomore EP Gorgeous. After much success following their first release Cascade back in 2015, the young Queenslander’s have a lot to show after supporting the likes of Confidence Man, Ocean Alley, as well as showing casing their work throughout ARIA week back in 2016.
Taking the time to develop their sound, IVEY are back with a release that shows a lot of growth in their vocals and instrumentation.
This five-track release takes listeners on a journey of discovery as we listen to the change and progress of the young musicians. Featuring endless indie hooks and riffs to make you hum along, the upbeat catchy melodies are nothing like we’ve heard before.

Stand out track on this EP would have to be ‘Won’t Be’. The track is light and bubbly in character and has a similar sound/feel to groups such as San Cisco and The Jungle Giants. The track is littered with energy, mostly likely coming from the push in the electric guitars but is grounding with a strong base line. The perfect combination to have the windows down in the car, and the music playing loud.
