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.
ivytide’s new ep “softy” encapsulates feelings of vulnerability and openness in the early stages of a relationship.
finding it difficult to divulge conjured up feelings, this body of work is an unapologetic expression of thoughts held in passing.
every song on the ep addresses a specific insecurity with regards to the relationship, hence the ironic play on words in the title “softy”.
both the sound and lyrics of the songs capture a certain softness, excitement, and uncertainty brought on by a new relationship.
