After a run of infectious singles released over the past 12 months, today Ivey are revealing their new EP ‘love + miscellanea’, out now via Mirror Records. ‘love + miscellanea’ also includes new single I Hate U and accompanying double ‘I Hate U/Scream’ music video directed by Dom Gould.
The release will be followed by a run of headline shows across South East Queensland including Brisbane, Toowoomba, Sunshine Coast and their hometown of the Gold Coast.
To accompany the EP, the band have created a digital interactive website and share the stories and themes behind the EP. Talking about the website the band said “As the world moves more and more online we thought the best way to display our EP – love + miscellanea, and connect with you, whether you are friend, family, fan or stranger – would be through our own digital, interactive world”.

The ‘love + miscellanea’ EP, which was produced by Konstantin Kersting (Tones & I / Mallrat) is stacked with previous singles Talk Talk, Scream, Midnight, Bodies and Valentine, two remixes, an acoustic version of #1 streaming track Bodies, and their brand new single I Hate U, out today.
Talking about the themes running through the EP guitarist Lachlan McGuffie says “’love + miscellanea’ explores the stages of a romantic relationship. Each song came from a different place in time and from our separate experiences. Once we aligned the songs, we realised that our individual stories were actually piecing together a timeline in which a single relationship begins, flourishes and eventually falls apart.”
The EP follows a string of successful single releases over the last twelve months. Recent single Midnight gained a spot add to Triple J as well as being added to Spotify playlists New Music Friday AU, Front Left, Get Popped, Indie Arrivals and more, whilst their previous single Scream was heard spinning on high rotation nationwide with Triple J.
After selling out their own shows across the country, and touring with Lime Cordiale, Ivey have stacked up over 3.5 million streams on Spotify across their catalogue of indie-pop anthems.
In addition, the quintet were nominated for the Gold Coast Music Awards for Live Act Of The Year, Song Of The Year, and Breakout Artist Of The Year. This follows the band’s recent Queensland Music Awards nomination in the Pop category.
