Dirty Passionate Daydreaming marks the third full-length release from Los Angeles indie band The Ivy Walls following the well-received 2009 record The Elegant Universe. With a subtle blend of new wave, shoegaze, and post punk influences, Dirty Passionate Daydreaming not only charts dreamy pop territory but also has some heavier moments with a pop sensibility.
L.A.-based musicians Jeff Yanero (guitar/vocals), Adam Waldon (drums), and The Count (Bass) came together to form The Ivy Walls in 2007.
The band released and recorded their debut album Lovers in Hotels in 2008 and after a string of television placements including the hit show "Royal Pains" and a low budget video featuring ANTM's Joanie Dodds, they returned to the studio once again.
In 2010, they released The Elegant Universe while again finding success in film and television placements. The video for the first single from the album, "Getaway Driver," also garnered regular play on MTV while the song itself was featured in the movie "Deadheads".
In 2011, The Ivy Walls recorded Dirty Passionate Daydreaming at the famed Henson Studios in Los Angeles. According to the band, they used some of their earliest material on the record, which was written when the band was just a seedling.
In Jan 2012, Dirty Passionate Daydreaming hit the airwaves and in Feb. 2012 the album's video for single "All I Want" which stars Chris Pine (Star Trek, Unstoppable, This Means War) and Robert Baker (Leatherheads, Grey's Anatomy), premiered on MTV and can be seen on outlets worldwide.
