Ivan & Alyosha Premieres Video For "Oh This Love," Announces New Tour Dates With Noah Gundersen
New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Ivan & Alyosha have released a new video for their song "Oh This Love." Produced as part of their "Cabin Sessions" series, the evocative video is currently live on Diffuser.fm. Performing with only an acoustic guitar and light percussion, the quintet's front-and-center vocal harmonies are backdropped by their gorgeous natural surroundings at dusk. Diffuser writes, "when you strip away most of the instrumentation, you're left with a group of incredibly talented musicians who can inspire and induce tears with little more than the sound of their voices. And that's exactly what they demonstrate in the video..."
The band will be teaming up with singer-songwriter Noah Gundersen this September for a string of tour dates that will take them from their mutual hometown of Seattle out across the midwest. View full tour dates below.
Ivan & Alyosha released their sophomore record It's All Just Pretend on May 4th to critical acclaim. The album first premiered on The Wall Street Journal who writes, "The result is 11 buoyant songs that lean more toward pop than folk on 'It's All Just Pretend,' an album rich in hooks, with tight vocal harmonies and robust instrumental arrangements." It's All Just Pretend was produced and engineered by Ryan Carbary, Joe Chiccarelli (U2, My Morning Jacket) and Chad Copelin.
The band has since been featured in Entertainment Weekly, Paste, American Songwriter, and The A.V. Club. Their single "All This Wandering Around" was featured as KCRW's Today's Top Tune and has seen airplay on Triple A stations across the country, including WXRT (Chicago), WRLT (Nashville) KEXP (Seattle), KINK (Portland), WXPN (Philadelphia) and KGSR (Austin).
It's All Just Pretend follows the band's acclaimed 2013 debut LP All The Times We Had. The album received great support from the press, including NPR Music, Filter, American Songwriter, Paste Magazine and USA Today, who said, "[a] sound as filled with hope as it is harmony. These songs are sheer joy, from their melodic surface to deep inside their lyrical core."
Ivan & Alyosha is: Tim Wilson (lead vox, guitar), Ryan Carbary (guitar, piano). Tim Kim (guitar), Pete Wilson (bass) and Cole Mauro (drums).
