This Week in Posivibes: Will Ivy


Will Ivy’s first solo 7” came out on Pretty Penny this weekend, with a release show at LA’s HM157. Most recently of Dream Boys, Ivy has played in a number of great SF groups, including Girls and Hunx and His Punx. Scrap Plastic b/w If I Was A Painter is a great debut of solo material, two tightly crafted pop gems reminiscent of Aztec Camera and Close Lobsters that have the sound of the solid and the classic about them.

There are a hundred copies of the 7” with original covers, all of which are on display at HM157’s gallery before becoming available for sale. In the meantime, you can buy digital copies of the 7” here and read an interview with Ivy at What Youth. Watch the video for “If I Was a Painter,” which premiered via LA Record, after the jump.
