“Like all Ivan & Alyosha songs, "Glorify"--the first song released from the band's upcoming Fathers Be Kind EP--is sweet and charming. It's got a gently strummed but steady guitar and Tim Wilson's clear, uncomplicated vocals. These same qualities were what made 2009's The Verse the Chorus so consistently good and the single "Easy to Love" so lovely. But that consistency also meant that Ivan & Alyosha's debut wasn't very diverse in its songwriting: all the tracks had tinges of 1960s-style pop with steady, guitar-led rhythms.”
