When Elias Ronnenfelt saysÂ he’s hungry for love, I believe him. Â The frontman of Iceage, Copenhagen’s finest post-punk noisemakers, has joined forces with 5 other like-minded peers and created a record supported almost entirely on improvisation. Â This ain’t a side project, though. Â It’s a fully realized concept, andÂ according to Ronnenfelt, it’s music dedicated to “nocturnal longing, preposterous self-obsession and cock-eyed etiquette.” Â Whoa.
On the title track, Elias lurches and writhes into the microphone over a menacing bass line reminiscent of Iggy Pop’s Munich era masterpieces. Â Hungry For Love is a visionÂ of a man who will never get what he craves, staggering and stumbling in the dark for anything to soothe his lust…but he pleads to no one. Â Powerful stuff.
