Song: "History Repeats"
Artist: Ivy League TX
Place Of Origin: Midland, Texas
Years Active: 2011-present
WHAT I THINK THE SONG IS ABOUT:
"History Repeats" appears to be a song about a relationship that was doomed from the start. The two people involved in the relationship do have a lot in common. Unfortunately, it seems that all their bad traits are what are similar. It appears that the relationship is an on again off again type thing, where all the problems of the past seem to rare their ugly head again. In this vicious circle, history does indeed repeat, and all for the worse.

2013 - "Transparency" (6131 Records)
CURRENT STATUS OF IVY LEAGUE TX:
Ivy League TX is a band that hails from Midland, Texas and came on the scene around 2011. The band released two EP's that year, a self titled and "Summer Sessions". In 2013, the band hooked up with 6131 Records and recorded and released their debut full length album, "Transparency". The band has since been on the road, trying to get their name out there. Currently, the band just dropped another self titled EP in 2016 which is available through their bandcamp page. Ivy League TX is a band that is still very much trying to find their sound in the world of punk rock music. Their sound is somewhere in between of street/skate punk of a band like Face To Face and the melodic punk sound of early Thrice material. The difference is that both Face To Face and Thrice have established their sound and Ivy League TX is still searching theirs out. As of now, Ivy League TX is nothing more than an opening act. I don't say that in a negative way. Every band has to start somewhere, it's those who really harness their sound, their direction and who they want to be that start moving to the forefront of their particular scene. Ivy League TX shows promise. Hopefully, they begin to blossom in the future.
