IVAN AND ALYOSHA’S ‘EASY TO LOVE’ IS NPR’S SONG OF THE DAY

NPR

“Easy to Love” by local band Ivan and Alyosha is the NPR ‘Song of the Day.’ NPR says, “A young Seattle duo with a moniker inspired by Dostoyevsky characters, Ivan and Alyosha just released an utterly charming seven-song debut EP titled The Verse, The Chorus. On the surface, the duo’s greatest gift is its charming, good-natured modesty: “Easy to Love,” for example, chugs along simply and unassumingly while gathering up every scrap of goodwill a song can muster. But there’s more to “Easy to Love” than mere likeability. A propulsive, sweetly booming ode to love as a feat of endurance, the song lays out a matter-of-fact guide to surviving hard times before it even gets to its simple but irresistible chorus. But “Easy to Love” really boils down to little more than the kind and clear notion that being in love, and staying in love, makes nothing seem insurmountable.” Hearthe song at the above link.
