{This Is Ivy League}


We posted about these boys about a month ago, but back then we only gave you the first single "London Bridges". Now we introduce you to This Is Ivy League's new summer single and a cover of Arcade Fire's "Crown of Love"!

This Is Ivy League's (Alex Suarez and Ryland Blackinton) debut self-titled album filled with Simon & Garfunkel and Belle & Sebastian-esque pop, available now through Twentyseven Records.

Pitchfork said the album ”sustains a soft-focus weirdness, borrowing all the elements you’d expect from a postmillennial Chad & Jeremy -- blazers, bicycles, merry-go-rounds, a park in autumn-- while adding a few new flourishes-- women in animal costumes, gently evocative use of color and pattern. Alex Suarez and Ryan Blackinton croon their crisp harmonies, finishing each other’s sentences and riffs, nearly symmetrical as they perform atop their pedestals for the animal woman.”

Have a listen...
