Alice Ivy’s ‘Touch’ takes us down the rabbit hole
ALICE IVY’S track ‘Touch’ featuring GEORGIA VAN ETTEN is one for the nostalgic, we don’t want to spoil the surprise but it features a sample straight from your childhood.
Headed out on her first ever Australian tour in the next couple of weeks, Alice Ivy, is a Melbourne artist who started out on the scene as the guitarist in a soul band but has struck out on her own to create a unique sound all of her own which is present in ‘Touch.’
‘Touch’ is the first single off her upcoming debut album which is due to be released later this year and it’s a fascinating infusion of RnB style sampling, funk music beats and soul harmony all wrapped up in smooth electronic production. It’s a track made for a bar and for those based in Alice Ivy‘s native Melbourne, it’s easy to imagine sitting in a bar in Brunswick street with ‘Touch’ playing just loud enough to drown out your friend or coworker’s boring work related conversation.
Alive Ivy will be on tour throughout February with dates around the country, catch her live or try to convince the cute bartender to give ‘Touch’ a play come Friday night.
