1. Ivytide - Film (Cred. Alif Bayzid).jpg


ivytide is an indie pop band from montreal, canada. founding members, nathan gagné (vocals, guitar), jamie snytte (guitar) and kyle ruggiero (bass) met at a recording studio, where they started to develop a chemistry in their songwriting.  a mutual love for lo-fi indie music led to the production of bedroom pop songs with intricate, but catchy melodies, which float on top of well thought-out instrumentation.

about the newest release.

We do not recollect our memories in a pure way. Rather, when we reconstruct them in our minds, our “portable darkroom”, they are filled with artifacts, blemishes and impurities, like a photograph from a film camera gaining its color.


Ivytide’s debut album provides an aperture into the band’s emotions, experiences and memories, as you hear the songs developing throughout. The record showcases Ivytide’s signature indie pop stylings, here infused with idiosyncratic elements from cabins across Québec (the band's physical darkrooms), inviting listeners into the dwellings where the album was written and produced.


An eclectic body of work, “portable darkroom” includes upbeat unapologetic earworms, alongside emotional indie-folk offerings, as Ivytide stakes their claim to a broader and more mature musical landscape. Pulling on the depths of vulnerability, loss and instability, captivating soulful vocals guide the listener through Ivytide’s “portable darkroom”.
