Friends of Alice Ivy

Friends of Alice Ivy's protagonists, Kylie and Amps, were members of one of Australia's best-loved alternative acts of the 90's, Ostia, a band whose crystalline, guitar-based songs scaled the dizzying and elegant heights of mid-period Cocteau Twins and the shoegazing grandeur of early Slowdive. Though Ostia has slumbered in a state of hiatus since 1998 (despite emerging for a brief reunion in 2007), Kylie and Amps have continued to create musical works of otherworldly beauty, foregoing Ostia's more traditional guitar/bass/vocal structures, enveloping their songs in entrancing strings, plucked harps and minimalist percussion.
