IVAN INK ‘N’ ISA

A MUSICAL COLLABORATION
IVAN INK +PEN & ISABELLA ‘MACHINE’ SUMMERS (Florence + the Machine)
LONDON SHOW 28TH JANUARY 2011
EP RELEASE ON BRINK RECORDS/AWAL, 7TH FEBRUARY 2011

The Ivan Ink ‘n’ Isa EP is the first collaborative release from Oliver Briggs (Ivan Ink + Pen) and Isabella Summers (Florence + The Machine). Their friendship began years ago, in Peckham, among the painted faces that congregated in an old Co-op filled with booze and machinery.

The four-track EP, to be released 7th February 2011 on Oliver’s independent label Brink Records forms a captivating introduction to the pair’s sophisticated musicianship, folkloric storytelling, driving guitars and electronic twists.v

Ivan Ink ‘N’ Isa – ‘Standing on a Hill’ from lewiskylewhite on Vimeo.

Ivan Ink ‘n’ Isa sit somewhere between Bowie’s ‘Low’ and Bat for Lashes. Orchestral and electronic by turns, they create an atmosphere all their own, a light and dark noise grown from sketches, overheard fragments and passages in books.

Feel the wind in your hair with Standing on a Hill, a rainy day fairytale filled with strings and pleas. Get captured in the reverberating melancholy of Caught in Symmetry and swept away by the saltwater shanty Lovers Kiss.

Track Listing:
1. Lover’s Kiss 02:58
2. Standing on a Hill 03:23
3. Caught in Symmetry ft. Lucy Lovebird 03:44
4. Silver or Lead 04:14

Ivan Ink ‘N’ Isa will bring their electric live show to the Barfly on Friday 28th January, headlining a night hosted by The Fly magazine. Laurel Collective will be in support as well as DJs from the writers of The Fly and Dennis Believe.

Friday 28th January- The Barfly/ £5 in advance. Stage time 12 midnight.

Isa now tours as keyboardist in Florence + The Machine. She has six additional production credits and co wrote five songs on the Brit-award winning, multi-platinum album ‘Lungs’.
Oliver had the opportunity to work in session and on tour with Richard File (Unkle) and We Fell To Earth, which provoked a departure from the screaming energy of his previous incarnation as one third of altrock group Ivich Lives.
