It’s never too late to spread a little love into the world, especially for the new Ivey single ‘Valentine’.
The title of the Gold Coast five piece’s latest pop nugget, released on Friday, may elicit thoughts of love and roses and romance, but its lyrics are a little darker.
“‘Valentine’ comes from the darker side of a broken relationship,” band member Lachlan reveals. “It echoes a toxic time in which I wanted more out of a relationship than the other person did, and in turn it drove us both to be completely irrational, insecure and vicious.
“The culmination of it all was around Valentine’s Day three years ago, hence the reference.”
Cleverly Lachlan has turned pain into something rather beautiful; another precursor to a new EP, slated for release later in the year.
