Ivy & Gold ~ Headlights

Ivy And Gold Smoke And Mirrors EP Cover Art!

Who is IVY & GOLD?  A two-piece Electronic Pop duo from London otherwise known as Rachel Wilkinson and Jamie Davies!

My first impression of “Headlights” :  An emotionally charged electro-pop number with the feels reminiscent of a LONDON GRAMMAR tune!

My take :  “Headlights” mixes a familiar pop structured skeleton with electronic beats and textures that are hard to ignore even though I feel at times I have heard this all somewhere before.  Yet I find myself sitting back and completely taking it all in. The ardent and vehemently styled vocals brush brazenly against me with not only a passionate and aggressive fervor but also with an absorbing and intoxicating embrace.  Simply put, the vocals are phenomenal and take the song to the next level.   I don’t really get the concept behind the bright and glittery music video but there is no denying “Headlights” is a seriously entertaining song.  And if their ‘SMOKE & MIRRORS’ Ep is any early indication, IVY & GOLD is a name primed to make some major moves in the coming year!

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
