New Music: Ivy & Gold

London based duo delivering dramatic electronica in spades…

On the day that their epic new single “Red Wine” is released, let us introduce you to the magic that is Ivy & Gold  (A.K.A Rachel Wilkinson and Jamie Davies). The track is a heady mix of tripped out beats, smooth piano progressions and soaring vocals. Those are just some of the ingredients that we’ve enjoyed on previous releases by the band which were produced in collaboration with chart-topper Sigala. “Red Wine” represents Rachel & Jamie’s first independent production credit and the shift in sound is real.  Influenced by producers such as Diplo, Alex da Kid, Joel Little and Max Martin the single features sumptuous synth pop laced with pitch switches, tempo and melody, all bound up with Eastern top notes.

We first saw them at their 2015 Great Escape show which drew enviable queues of industry folk. Since that time the band have performed at Lovebox and we caught them again last week during their Community LDN Festival show at The Woods in Shoreditch.  The set that night included the duo’s cover of Coldplay’s ‘Trouble’ – a graceful & delicate update to Chris Martin’s melancholy classic.

We were eager to hear more…
