Ivan and Alyosha perform a sampling of their album, "All the Times We Had," an impressive session embodied by optimism: uplifting content driven by a combination of acoustic guitars, electric trimmings, subtle percussion and impeccable vocal deliveries.

"Easy to Love" is an endearing song about being with the right partner and giving credit to them for offering devotion at ease through life's trials, and the bond is strengthened, as the lyrics show, "Yeah, we've been through that and we came out on top." This peaceful tune invites the listener in with pleasant acoustic guitar chords, well-placed harmonies and a spectacular solo voice which hangs on all the right notes.

"Don't Wanna Die Anymore" features more distinctive guitar picking accompanied by a tambourine and the slight thump of a bass drum. A message of hope and resolve is shared in the idea to change directions, avert from the wrong path and cross the terrain to begin anew, setting higher standards and embracing goodness. The chorus offers, "I can teach the world to sing my song."

Finally, "Be Your Man" is a fun, up-tempo tune which paints a picture of what life could be like if "she" chooses "him." The pop melody is a bit more whimsical, with waves of vocals sung in a way that the words seem to be rolling up and down a hillside, and a repetitive chorus that accentuates the desire to grab the attention of his object of affection. The gained momentum of the guitars and drum highlight the conclusion of the song and session.

The Seattle band's members are Tim Wilson (lead vocals), his brother, Pete Wilson (bass, vocals), Tim Kim (electric guitar, vocals) and Ryan Carbary (guitars, piano, vocals).
