Earlier this week, New Slang caught up with Jon Seaborn of indie rock risers, Ivory & Ash. They’ve been able to build up an underground following, primarily built on their loud and engaging shows and their grittier, beach-rock (think Surfer Blood, Real Estate, not Jack Johnson) anthems.
They currently have one of their best tracks to date, “Can’t See That Far” available for free download here.
“‘Can’t See That Far’ was written by Race, but it came from a bass line that Chris had been playing with forever,” says Seaborn. “It’s been up for free download for about a month now, but we are really trying to push it to get people excited about our new EP, ‘God Bless Your Bloody Ears.'”
The band’s next show is on November 20 at The Meatlocker with La Panza and Daniel Fluitt of Thrift Store Cowboys.
