Ivory Wave release new video & announced as main support for The Sherlocks

Birmingham quintet Ivory Wave have today released a new video for latest single ‘Weigh Me Down’. Filmed at their recent headline Birmingham show, it encapsulates their contagious energy and beautifully chaotic live shows. They can also announce that they will be joining The Sherlocks as main support on their UK Feb & March tour (full dates below).


Track ‘Uptown’ is about growing tired of endlessly living for the weekend – you spend all week planning a big night out only to wake up with a hangover and an empty wallet. The video captures that routine of spending every Sunday in lazy recovery mode, the only benefit of which is epic FIFA sessions on the Xbox. In fact, the band have been embraced by the football community, with adds to the Official Premier League playlist and Soccer AM’s New Music playlist plus match day plays at West Brom

While Ivory Wave are natural party provocateurs, the EP’s closing track ‘Young Blood’ captures another side to them. It’s a slow-burner that gradually builds in intensity before it erupts into a wall-of-sound, with a final, rousing contribution from the Birmingham Community Gospel Choir accentuating the song’s feeling that better times are just around the corner.

‘Dream Nights’was produced by Matt Terry (The ProdigyYou Me At Six) and recorded at VADA StudiosWarwickshire. It was mixed by the Grammy Award-winner Adrian Bushby (Foo FightersMuseEverything Everything).

“Three years of work have been saturated down into 25 minutes of pure Ivory Wave,”says frontman George Johnson“It’s time for people to pay attention – this is the best Birmingham has sounded for years”

Ivory Wave are five long-term friends in their early twenties who share an eclectic range of influences – from Oasis and The Stone Roses to BowieSex Pistols and Human League. Based in a lock-up in Birmingham, their mission statement was to blend those influences into a modernist sound which would connect with their own generation.
