RIYL: Marching Church, VÃ¥r, The Birthday Party
Label: Mexican Summer
As I sit here in my ice cocoon down here in powerless Texas waiting for the sun or for quick death (whichever comes first), I couldn’t dream up a more appropriate preorder to announce than Copenhagen post punk icons ICEAGE. Titled Seek Shelter, the brooding Danish ensemble have come together once more to disassemble what their audience thinks of them and reimagine their brand of experimental rock abrasion.
Newest single Vendetta is arguably one of their best to date, a dirty synth stomper from the school of The Idiot, carried by Elias Bender Ronnenfelt’s unhinged vocal performance. On Vendetta, his howl conjures up Shaun Ryder’s joyful chaotic bawl in The Happy Mondays, but still harnesses the sinister energy that Iceage have perfected for the better part of a decade. Have they already solidified their place on our 2021 Top 10 list? It’s possible!
Grab an autographed copy of Seek Shelter after the ‘buy’ link on clear vinyl. You can also get it from Mexican Summer HERE. Those are limited to 750 copies. There’s also a slightly rarer Dinked version limited to 600 on black and white smoky vinyl HERE as well as other UK distro sites that carry them.
