The Ivy’s “Missing Out” has the vibe I needed this week. Mixing indie pop rhythms and vocals with a fun electro pop beat, the single is frankly the perfect retro blend of happy and sad.
While the lyrics focus on “the fantasy” most people want to live, the rhythm is there with a lift. It’s a perfect bittersweet, nostalgic style for this very trying year, and it’s perfectly catchy.
The Oklahoma-based trio have earned over six million streams on Spotify alone, reached #3 on the global viral charts there for their single “Gold”, and had a second even bigger hit with their track “Have You Ever Been in Love”.
