NEW MUSIC: Iceage – The Holding Hand

News in today today Iceage have signed with Mexican Summer and released a brand new single ‘The Hold Hand’.

“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.” – Elias Bender Rønnenfelt

Lead singer and lyricist Elias Bender Rønnenfelt’s voice crawls over slow-marching percussion, and as scorching guitar and Nils Gröndahl’s piercing violin layer in, the song rises to a noisy peak. Listen to the song now + watch the Anders Malmberg directed video below.
