From humble beginnings from London, Ontario in 2012 to filling concert venues in Toronto this indie-pop group knows how to entertain.

Upon arriving, we took the time to note how unique and modern the venue was. The main stage, lounge and bar area surrounded the floor, unique to any other Toronto locale. This is important to point out as their energy when performing filled the venue; making the whole event even more special.

Touring for their first studio album, Morning Light, Ivory Hours made the crowd fall in love with the trio even more than they already did. Matched in unison, the band members; Luke Roes (vocals and guitar), Chris Levesque (bass), and Thomas Perquin (drums) were wearing all black, proving that they’re a band that doesn’t need a gimmick, but a great sound to attract people.

Throughout the performance, the crowd was constantly dancing in rhythm to the music and when Luke would interact with the crowd there was obvious adoration with shout of “we love you” and even when the band had finished their set there were constant calls for “one more”. Besides playing most songs from their recent album, including their better-known songs “Warpaint” and “Mary”, Ivory Hours played an okay cover of “Feel” by Bombay Bicycle Club. The band returned for an encore, playing MGMT’s classic “Time to Pretend”. Even after their encore, the crowd was still demanding more. After leaving the stage, Luke, Chris and Thomas made their way through the audience and interacted with anyone who wanted to talk. Thus proving this band is well loved for their music and personality.

We cannot wait to hear more from Ivory Hours, and if you missed them this time, they will be performing again May 5th at the Horseshoe Tavern.
