This was a sweet homecoming as they were the first band to play an official Seattle Secret Show six years ago. Seattle Living Room Shows had already been in full swing for 3-years publicly announcing artists to play in low-key living rooms. Once the brand expanded to putting on shows in unique, and often larger, locations, all artists were then kept secret. Ivan & Alyosha was the first Secret band to be booked just as they were releasing their second EP, Fathers Be Kind, in 2011. Since then they’ve gone on to release two full-length albums with great success.
Most recently they have been busy recording tracks for their upcoming album and they gave the audience a sneak-listen to many. Their sound remains crisp with perfect pitch and harmonies and the new songs have a real down to earth, relaxed feel to them. Ivan & Alyosha will be taking the new songs for a spin, as well as the older favorites, this Friday night at the Neptune.
