It’s been amusing me for weeks just how catchy this song is and I can assure you that you will end up singing along to this very quickly… This synth-lead, post punk track ‘Ivanovich‘ comes from the brand new project of Portsmouth based solo artist Operation Ivan, a familiar face from a certain Portsmouth band. The track kicks off with a monologue introducing ‘Ivanovich’, then a minute or so in the commanding vocals break through the jangly instrumentation and buzzy synths. It’s a fun track that’s laced with pop sensibilities that add to the track’s unique edge. ‘Ivanovich’ will get stuck in your head.
Speaking of the ‘Ivanovich’, Operation Ivan has said: “From the furthest coats of the west to the grounds of Baikonur cosmodrome, legendary wooden cosmonaut Ivanovich has seen it all. Despite his retirement the legend lives on through name and memory. Never caught, never captured and never found. The wooden boy wonder shall return! A dedication to brains behind the orange suits of the space race.”
