Just when you think you have The Ivy all figured out as a dreamy synth-pop band, they’ll throw a curve ball, incorporating lo-fi bedroom sounds, rock guitars or R&B-inspired instrumental interludes into their indie pop. The Tulsa, Oklahoma-based duo comprising singer/songwriter/guitarist Wyatt Clem and songwriter/synth player/bassist Shawn Abhari always keeps you guessing.
Dubbed by Earmilk as “one of the most promising indie pop acts to come out of Oklahoma,” The Ivy burst onto the scene in 2017 when their songs “Gold” & “Have You Ever Been in Love” went viral, climbing the Spotify charts & receiving millions of streams, winning over critics and drawing comparisons to The 1975.
Wyatt and Shawn met studying at the Academy of Contemporary Music in Oklahoma City & discovered their musical styles complemented each other. Shawn loved emo and pop punk like Green Day and Blink-182 & Wyatt was influenced by R&B and the blues. When they came together, these disparate influences balanced out beautifully.
With three critically acclaimed EPs under their belts, The Ivy have fans around the world, shared the stage with LANY and the Band Camino, performed at Lollapalooza and are making indelible waves in the indie pop scene.
