At The Ivy Walls CDBaby page, the band says that The Cure and Tears For Fears have influenced them among others. And The Cure was the first band that struck me when I listened to the CD for the first time. But they are actually right with Tears For Fears as well, even if I find the music more "depressing" than TFF´s (but two examples of TFF´s sort of music are the brilliant "You Say Nothing" and "Now Or Never"). Add influences of Death Cab For Cutie, Lovedrug and Echo and The Bunnymen, and I have explained quite well what kind of music we have on this, their second album. And they are good and they have Jeff Yanero on sits on a very beautiful and unique voice, and everything combined makes you want to check out the disc and the group at once. This is a really cool album.
