Copenhagen’s Iceage have shared a new single/video, “Shelter Song,” taken from their new album, Seek Shelter, out May 7th on Mexican Summer. The video was directed by longtime friend and collaborator Catherine Pattinama Coleman, who has worked with the band on two previous videos. It offers a rare, intimate look into the band’s life in Copenhagen amongst family and friends.
Coleman elaborates: “Iceage asked me if I wanted to direct the video for ‘Shelter Song.’ As a childhood friend of theirs, it was important for me to showcase our friendship and the people we share everyday life with. So instead of making a video full of symbolism or a staged performance, I wanted to make a private and personal video close to our hearts. After a crazy year of COVID-19, the world in flames and structural racism peaking at such an extent, I wanted to create a meaningful piece, especially being a woman of color and fully in my third trimester. In the midst of a pandemic it’s important to remember that those of us who are privileged enough to have a roof over our heads, food, security, love and care, is something of great value. Love is not something one should not take for granted.”
