Ivoryline‘s new video for “Instincts” can be seen on their Facebook page. The song comes from their latest album, Vessels, in stores and [itunes link=”http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/no-one-else/id380829384?uo=4″ title=”Ivoryline – Vessels” text=”online”] now.
Ivoryline is set to release their new album, Vessels, on July 27th. Produced by Aaron Sprinkle (Anberlin, The Almost), Vessels showcases a more mature and diverse Ivoryline than was heard on their previous record. “We just started writing,” says vocalist Jeremy Gray. “We didn’t really have a plan or agenda for the record. We just wrote what was on our hearts and hashed out the songs together. We had ample time to get the songs just the way we wanted and had a blast writing and recording the record. It really was one of the most exciting, joy-filled times of my life.”
Clean vocals with a hard rock edge ring out on Ivoryline’s debut Tooth & Nail album, There Came A Lion. I’ve always been a sucker for a rock band to have this exact criteria of good clean vocals with a harder edge and Ivoryline pull it off quite well. Stellar songs like “Parade” and “Bravery” are filled with catchy hooks and strong vocals that remind me of everything from Anberlin to Saosin. Its not all that often you find an album you can put in and enjoy without having to think about it too much, its easy to enjoy.
If you are a fan of Anberlin, Saosin, or the clean vocal / hard edge style I described above then this album should bring your ears some pleasure.
