Although indie pop duo THAT IS Ivy Little league formed in August 2005, Alex Suarez (guitar, trumpet, vocals, drums, bass) and Ryland Blackinton (guitar, vocals, synth, bass) had originally met in 1997 during senior high school in Florida. After senior high school, Suarez pursued a qualification in the culinary arts and Blackinton acquired a B.F.A. in performing. Years later on while surviving in Brooklyn, Blackinton found out to his shock that Suarez was also surviving in the borough. The duo instantly began writing tracks collectively, and their 1st EP, London Bridges, premiered on Twentyseven Information in summer season 2006.
