Iceage have shared a brand new single, their first via new label home Mexican Summer.
Titled ‘The Holding Hand’, the band’s Elias Bender Rønnenfelt explains: “The song lives in a slurred world, movements are elastically stretched out and strength is found in weakness while you find it hard to tell the difference between fume and matter. Gently the swaying intensifies, feel it escalate. Reach out for the holding hand, it seems almost within scope now.”
So there you go, eh?
It comes alongside a video from Anders Malmberg, featuring ‘dramatic portraits’ of the band, who adds: “The band has such an amazing and soulful presence, and my aim was to create a cinematic experience around image reflections that would tie in closely to the narrative and the emotional atmosphere of the track, and let the authenticity that the band radiates feel ever present.”
Must be nice to radiate authenticity, mustn’t it Dear Reader? Just to walk into a room an authenticate the hell out of it simply by existing. Anyway, here’s that video.
