“Ivy Nations potentially fill that gaping hole that [Two Door Cinema Club] have left in our lives… For such a fresh band, they already seem to have found their perfect sound.” – Irish Band of the Week, DublinConcerts.ie
After supporting the likes of Kodaline, The Academic and The Strypes, Irish indie quartet Ivy Nations return with ‘Live By Design’, exploring the pace of modern life and technology. With a driving beat and addictive chorus, ‘Live By Design’ is set to be released April 7th via Reckless Records.

Having supported The Blizzards in the Olympia theatre, reaching number 3 on the HypeM Twitter Charts and playing Electric Picnic Festival, Ivy Nations found they were being praised for their refined sound, which they have established well with producer Phil Magee (Kodaline, The Script).
Taking influence from Two Door Cinema Club, Foals and Vampire Weekend, ‘Live By Design’, directed and produced by Blacktooth Films, touches on our inability to keep up with modern technology. The single holds faithful to the energetic, dreamy sensibilities of the band’s previous releases but pushes forward.
