The name Ivan And Alyosha might suggest some quaint little two-piece, a couple of folk-singing ex-lovers. In reality, the Seattle quintet of the same name is something much different. There’s more proof coming later this spring, too: The infectious pop group will release its second album, It’s All Just Pretend, May 4 via Dualtone Music. While the album’s lead single, “All This Wandering Around,” has been kicking around for a bit already this year, The A.V. Club has the premiere of the album’s second track, “Bury Me Deep.” Catchy and anthemic, the track is a lovely way to kick off the last week of March.
