[watch] Ivan & Alyosha//Be Your Man


Ivan & Alyosha are proud to present the music video for their single “Be Your Man,” from their critically acclaimed debut album All The Times We Had, out now on Missing Piece / Dualtone Music Group.  The video humorously evokes the universal anxiety induced by high school gym class, and would not have been out of place as one of Kevin Arnold’s teenage nightmares on The Wonder Years.

The Seattle five piece will hit the road for a west coast tour in August with Brandi Carlile, playing select headline shows along the way including The Troubadour in Los Angeles before taking the stage at the Bumbershoot Music Festival on September 2nd. [via Big Hassle]
