Iceage reveal new single, “Gold City”

Copenhagen-based band Iceage have revealed a new single, “Gold City,” which is taken from their forthcoming album, Seek Shelter, out 7th May on Mexican Summer, and the band have also announced a 2022 UK tour.

Previewed on the band’s last North American tour, “Gold City” is a passage in Seek Shelter’s story of scorched-earth salvation. The American gospel and blues signatures present in previous single “Vendetta” reappear here as Elias Bender Rønnenfelt rousingly sings of a vast journey: “First there was I, then there was us // Off goes the layers, as written in dust // What you have lost, I shall provide // All that you left behind, I’ll pick up the supplies // Latch on // Hold still, before I forget // Remain in this passing juncture // Let it swarm, let it sit.

Rønnenfelt comments: “At home and enraptured in the fleeting moment, the sky becomes technicolor in its makeshift lucidity. A culmination made so that everything felt briefly complete. Traffic lights and the setting sun through a polluted filter, shimmering and golden.

Additionally, Iceage has announced a Seek Shelter livestream concert to take place on Saturday 22nd May at 8pm BST. The concert will feature a performance of Seek Shelter in its entirety.
