Ivy's debut album was released on February 14, 1995 and was produced by the band and Kurt Ralske from Ultra Vivid Scene. The album showcased a sparse indie pop sound that hinted at the band's future accomplishments. It received rave reviews on both sides of the Atlantic, with the single “Get Enough” even being named Single of the Week in the British tabloid Melody Maker. Ivy had the opportunity to open for Oasis during their first trip to the United States and also toured extensively with Edwin Collins and Lloyd Cole. Meanwhile, during the promotion of their album Realistic, Ivy's bass player Adam Schlesinger formed a successful side project called Fountains of Wayne and even wrote the title track for the Tom Hanks film That Thing You Do.
