Release Date: June 10, 3027
Hailing from London, Ontario Canadian, Indie Alt Pop trio Ivory Hours release their follow up the 2015 success of Morning Light with the brand new album Dreamworld.
It features single “Shadow Kids” as part of the 10-track offering released on June 10th.
The band initially formed in 2012 by singer songwriter Luke Roes and accompanied by Chris Levesque and Thomas Perquin, produce a mighty and mature offering. Soaring anthems and the perfect mix of synth and rock/fuzz will garner their deserved share of the airwaves this Summer.
Roes’s words are personal and current and develop as the album expands with songs like “Invincible” about 21st century love and a Bastille-like anthem in “Shadow Kids”. Album title track “Dreamworld” gets deep; exploring philosophical reasoning and enlightenment. Not your average pop genres.
“Hide & Seek” features a hypnotic chorus that sounds vaguely familiar, as many of the best songs tend to do on first hearing and is complemented with a sumptuous string middle-eight. Canadian Beats personal favourite (at the time of writing)!
“You” is a catchy portrait of love and loss replete with a fine guitar riff that will have you humming along hours after the finals notes of funky last track “Play Me”.
Recommended Taster Track: “Shadow Kids”
Hi, I’m originally from the UK; born between the music cities of Liverpool & Manchester, and have been playing guitar and going to see live music ever since High School. Arena gigs are good, but nothing beats the small intimate venues that showcase the talent and energy when a band is just starting out. I love all kinds of music, particularly guitar bands like the Smiths, the Cure, Lemonheads through to the likes of Modest Mouse, July Talk and Catfish & the Bottlemen….oh and coming from Liverpool, I have to say the Beatles!
I have been a Graphic Designer for over 20 years, I love music and I love a good album cover (check out Peter Saville’s creations). Since moving to Halifax, NS in 2009, I have started to write my first music book, and it’s a pleasure to join the talented team at Canadian Beats!
