Ivy is a New York City based hardcore band who formed in the fall of 2013.  Ivy play an off-kilter, nihilistic, and self-destructive sounding style of late 70's early 80's hardcore/punk.  Ivy sound is trashy, lo-fi, and by listening to them, you can tell that they don't give a fuck about trends and what's popular in underground music. Musically, Ivy can be said to be influenced by classic NYC punk bands such as the Dictators, Dead Boys, New York Dolls, Iggy And The Stooges, and other influential bands from that era.  Ivy takes that sound and filters it through a killer lo-fi lens, which puts a different spin on their take on trashy hardcore/punk.  Ivy really got my attention with their self-titled 12" released on Katorga Works last August.  A Cat's Curse, No Dog's Problem is the band's latest four song EP, which serves as their follow-up to their self-titled 7".  On their latest 7", Ivy offer up four new tracks of off-kilter, fuzzy, and blown-out sounding hardcore/punk.  Overall, Cat's Curse, No Dog's Problem is a killer 7" and should not be missed.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!  Cat's Curse, No Dog's Problem was released via Katorga Works on July 7th, 2015.
