Yesterday, Indie-pop trio Ivy premiered their new music video for stand-out single "Fascinated" from their recently released album All Hours on RollingStone.com. Watch the video above.
Songwriter/bassist Adam Schlesinger told Rolling Stone, “We made this video with our good friend Adam Neustadter, whom we've all worked with before. The song has a bit of an old school synth-pop vibe, and so the video features some robot dancing, some vintage synths, and a guy with no face." (See whole feature on RollingStone.com HERE).
"Seductive, sleek beat, wistful melody and a vaguely noirish scene set by Dominique Durand in a voice pitched halfway between a coo and a sigh." - Rolling Stone
"A perfect choice for a lead single, 'Distant Lights' is the most danceable work from
Ivy yet." - Consequence of Sound
Indie-pop trio Ivy's first studio album in 5 years is out today. All Hours marks a self-proclaimed "rebirth," finding the NYC-based band more focused on textures and rhythms than the guitar-centric sound that has characterized their previous albums. Singer Dominique Durand describes the writing process for All Hours as an attempt to "go back to some kind of innocence, and also a feeling of energy and excitement."
