He Danced Ivy are know to be weird but the mind bending, head thrashing music video froSpitting On Infinity takes strange to another level. Following four distinct puzzling story lines for each band member, its a perfect compliment to He Danced Ivy’s unique, satirical lyrics.
Spitting On Infinity is the perfect tune for a wild Saturday night, recorded in part during one of those wild Saturday nights when the group gathered a choir of their best mates in a Fortitude Valley parking lot.
“We gathered 25 of our closest friends and crammed them into an outdoor carpark to record the big last chorus group vocals. I don’t know how we didn’t get shut down, but listening back to our wild carpark-choir is easily one of our greatest memories,” saidbassist, Mitch.
All for the theatrics, He Danced Ivy always weave some kind of insane narrative into their music; just try to piece this one together.
“The song tells this story of this narcissist that’s in a relationship that’s falling apart. All the classic culprits are there; in-law drama, compartmentalized emotions, backstabbing, and the false hope that things will get better,” said lead vocalist, Dave.
“Each feeling is painted with equal parts with and sleaze as the narcissist loses all care for subtlety. They begin to revel in the opportunity to lie, cheat, and steal; hell with the consequences. They’re finished, all that’s left is to spit on infinity and piss on the sun,” said lead guitarist, Sean.
Spitting On Infinity is the follow up to their Frankenstein’s monster of a single,Guillotines, released in July, which saw the boys step loudly into the spotlight scoring a rotation spot on triple j Unearthed, support from community radio and taste-maker blogs across the country.
“The Cedric Bixler-Zavala vibes are definitely front and center, but that doesn’t stop this being as scorching as the kettle he threw at Westfest.”

“Combining the most slamming of riffs, the tastiest of drum grooves and the most saccharine-drenched of vocals, He Danced Ivy are here to push genre boundaries to their extreme.”
Bianca Davino – Tone Deaf
“Kinda like standing under a hills hoist clothesline that’s spinning really fast and smacks you with a variety of different cold fish.”
Paul Waxman – SYN Radio
“Sure, their band name may be kinda silly but always remember: never judge a book by its cover because sometimes there is some really good shit to be found within those pages.”
