The Ivory Coast
, an alternative rock five piece from Boston, is a group with a plethora of backgrounds. Band members Jay Cox
(guitar/vocals), Scott Craggs
(synthesizer), Drew O'Doherty (guitar), Nick Hubben
(bass), and Mahmood Shaikh
(drums) blend a jangly guitar pop sound layered with reflective lyrical imagery. The band's debut The Rush of Oncoming Traffic, which was finished in 1998, was finally issued two years later.
