It’s safe to say that Ivytide are responsible for some of the finest fusions of pop an and indie to emerge out of Canada right now.
Their new single ‘rent free’ is an upbeat number with distinctive vocals and rapped verses, serving as a perfect addition to your playlists.
“‘rent free’ plays with the metaphor of an individual crashing uninvited at a lover’s penthouse suite, making the place their own. The depiction of a cost-free and care-free lifestyle throughout the song is analogous to the comfortable behaviour of someone living rent free and occupying a special place in your mind.”
Taken from the upcoming EP ‘softy’ which is set for release on 1st September 2021.
One of Montreal’s finest, Ivytide return today with the release of new single ‘call it what u want’.
A perfect indie bop for the summer, this is an upbeat track that encapsulates the excitement of a new relationship, while also embodying the instability that comes along with it.
“We’re excited about the release of “call it what u want” because we feel it shows a different side of our music. It’s more upbeat, summery and hype than our previous songs, so we’re looking forward to seeing the kind of reception we’ll get from our fans. The theme of the song comes from the stress of putting a label on a relationship that started as something casual. The lyrics ‘call it what u want’ are a direct response to when hot boy/girl summer gets too serious.”
