This Is Where We Live

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - MacKenzie Wilson
Ivy's Dominique Durand and Andy Chase hold up their elegant indie pop stride for just a moment so that Paco's foxy strut can catch up. This Is Where We Live is a rock record. Of course Chase's signature studio tweaking is up to par and exactly polished. Durand's sophisticated vocal style couldn't be any more clear and crisp, so the dynamic that is This Is Where We Live is fully fashioned with temptation and mystery, and free of Ivy's classic pop sweetness. Having composer Michael Hampton and instrumentalist Gary Maurer walking close behind allows This Is Where We Live to settle in without any nerves or doubt.

All Music Guide - MacKenzie Wilson
Ivy's Dominique Durand and Andy Chase hold up their elegant indie pop stride for just a moment so that Paco's foxy strut can catch up. This Is Where We Live is a rock record. Of course Chase's signature studio tweaking is up to par and exactly polished. Durand's sophisticated vocal style couldn't be any more clear and crisp, so the dynamic that is This Is Where We Live is fully fashioned with temptation and mystery, and free of Ivy's classic pop sweetness. Having composer Michael Hampton and instrumentalist Gary Maurer walking close behind allows This Is Where We Live to settle in without any nerves or doubt. Paco's instrumental tribute to the French composer Erik Satie on the album opener is the perfect introduction. Soft-hued electronic pearls slowly mesh with layered electric guitars during sultry moments such as "My Love" and "Adore," but with a dash of brassy appeal. The playfully snooty "Lie" shimmies, girl group-style, with its seductive tale of deceit. Durand's smooth presentation maintains a lead in this bewitching game, eventually landing her bait on the string-synth laden "Who Do You Think You Are?" Undoubtedly Paco's slickest moment of the album, the lyrics play on ABC's "Poison Arrow" -- "You think you're the only dart/who's been thrown into this heart -- and its '60s-like cinematic surroundings floating above uphold Paco's post-rock/experiment overall. This Is Where We Live is a clever escapade in song and craft, so ready yourself to play again.
