Ten years since the release of their debut album, New Brigade, Copenhagen’s Iceage have returned with the release of “The Holding Hand“, the band’s debut single/video for new label, Mexican Summer.
“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,” says vocalist Elias Bender Rønnenfelt. “Gently the swaying intensifies, feel it escalate. Reach out for the holding hand, it seems almost within scope now.”
The song’s video, created by director/director of photography Anders Malmberg, captures dramatic portraits of Iceage: Elias Bender Rønnenfelt, Jakob Tvilling Pless, Johan Surrballe Wieth, Dan Kjær Nielsen and new member Casper Morilla Fernandez. “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,” comments Malmberg.
