Comprised of Rachel Wilkinson and Jamie Davies, the two-piece released their debut EP ‘Awake’ last year. The ‘Eye of the Storm’ EP is further testament to their talent for writing well-crafted pop songs and after recently sharing the EP’s lead track ‘Not Had Enough’, Ivy & Gold have been pricking up the ears of bloggers with their sophisticated, seductive melodies and Wilkinson’s strong vocals.

The duo are inspired by the soundtrack composers Tom Tyker (Cloud Atlas, Run Lola Run) and Hans Zimmer. Rachel’s lyrics are influenced by the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Jeff Buckley, Tori Amos and Florence and the Machine but she also finds supernatural stories to be a wealth of inspiration.
Having played a string of shows across London, the duo will return in September for a special show at St Pancras Church (Wednesday 17th September 2014).
