IVORY HOURS TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM DREAMWORLD ON JUNE 10
PRE-ORDER AVAILABLE NOW
Toronto, ON – April 18, 2017 – Fusing alternative rock with a modern pop aesthetic, Toronto’s Ivory Hours is a group defined by their resistance to convention – their melodies are massive but ethereal; their anthems soaring, yet intimate. Formed in 2012 by songwriter, Luke Roes, the band’s sound has come full circle, building on their 2015 debut album, Morning Light, and commercial radio debut, Warpaint. Now, the group is thrilled to share their sophomore full-length offering, Dreamworld, on June 10th. Pre-order Dreamworld here.
Transforming their art-rock beginnings into a farther-reaching ethos, the album represents a new era, juxtaposing synthesizers and monolithic hooks with walls of guitar and fuzzed out bass. Simultaneously ambitious and resolute, the new album proves that Ivory Hours is a band you shouldn’t sleep on. Roes’ words on Dreamworld are honest and insightful – whether he’s penning treatises on modern love (Invincible), feminist anthems (Shadow Kids) or delving deeper, musing on ideas of divinity and shared enlightenment in a post religious age (Dreamworld).
As bird songs and street noise flutter and swell, a voice flows through the cascading soundscape, singing “we’re living in a dreamworld, so don’t forget it.” It’s a call to arms, a battle cry for introspection that sets the tone for Dreamworld.
