Ivan & Alyosha w/ Atari Ferrari

The name is a bit deceiving: Ivan & Alyosha might have been founded by dual Seattle songwriters Tim Wilson and Ryan Carbary, but the band is actually a five-piece. The group (which takes its name from Dostoevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov) just released an EP called Everybody Breaks, and the title track is indicative of Ivan & Alyosha’s best work: The lush harmonies and bright melody almost obscure the dark lyrics (“Searching for my trouble / But my trouble finds me”) about emotional fragility and the dark state of the world. But, the song concludes, it’ll all be OK.
