What a year for Ivy Nations!
The band kicked off 2017 releasing single, "Live By Design" along with the amazing video for it which premiered on UK blog, London On The Inside. The video was directed by Benn Veasey and produced by Blacktooth Films... and we love it!
We took a little trip into Studio 8 in RTE where the guys had a little chat with Eoghan McDermott and played a few songs for Eoghan's show.
With the release of their single came the band's biggest headline show to date! MCD partnered with us to bring Ivy Nations to the Grand Social. They packed out the room!
The band played as many Irish festivals as they possibly could this summer, hitting Sea Sessions, Independence, the Castlepalooza main stage (!!!), and RTE 2FM's Play The Picnic stage at Electric Picnic!
They also headed over to London for their first ever UK show where they headlined Notting Hill Arts Club.
The most exciting part of the year was definitely the amazing reception of the band's latest single "Sentimental Hearts". In its first day alone, the single streamed over 13,000 times - we'll say that again - 13k in 24 hours! It was featured on several Spotify playlists, played on national radio, featured on RTE's "This Crowded House" and was played on BBC's Across The Line - huge! The track now has well over 120,000 streams on Spotify and is growing steadily.
