Ivan & Alyosha, Kris Orlowski

When: Sat., May 30, 8:30 p.m. 2015

NPR plucked Ivan & Alyosha from obscurity in 2010, and SXSW buzz propelled them to moderate early success. But they were mostly forgotten in the deluge of harmony-driven, popular folk acts trying to recreate the success of Mumford & Sons. On their new record, It’s All Just Pretend, they attempt to break from that crowd, trading in charming folk for U2 impressions of big electric guitars and booming percussion. It’s a safe new direction. Cathartic choruses make an impression as Ivan & Alyosha’s enviable sense of melody remains. —Justin Weber
