After years of extensive touring, Seattle band Ivan & Alyosha released a new album called All the Times We Had. The group celebrated its release by hanging with DJ Cheryl Waters earlier this year and playing a live set at the KEXP studios. “I want to be the man who understands his woman and you know she do right by me. Do you understand?” sings lead vocalist Tim Wilson. “And I want to be the boy who gets you all the little pretty things in your magazines. Oh, it’s such a joy!” Rich with jangly guitars, pulsing kicks, and floating harmonies, “Be Your Man” is a song you can’t help but tap your toes to and elicited from an ecstatic Cheryl Waters: “That was incredible! More, more, more!” And fans around the country can here more for themselves as Ivan & Alyosha is currently touring around the country. And you can hear more right now:
