Ivan & Alyosha are releasing their debut EP called The Verse, The Chorus on February 24th. Tim Wilson and Ryan Carbary formed Ivan & Alyosha (no, they’re not called Tim & Ryan) in 2007 and spent nearly a year writing pensive songs for their EP. In 2007 they recorded with Eli Thomson (Richard Swift) with Frank Lenz (Starflyer 59, The Headphones) on drums. Six months of mixing before sending the songs to TW Walsh (Pedro the Lion, The Soft Drugs) to be mastered.
Names aside, Ivan & Alyosha‘s music is an intriguing throwback to the `60s and early `70s, set to be released on February 24th on Cheap Lullaby Records. Their name is borrowed from Dostoyevsky, Ivan & Alyosha have conjured many elements that made the classics survive over the years.
