Published Sep 19, 2014Before Iceage go Plowing Into the Field of Love with their new full-length next month, the Copenhagen quartet are sowing the seeds of anticipation with an audio stream of their brilliantly beautiful album track "How Many."
While first single "The Lord's Favorite" had the act absorbing country and western flavours, "How Many" has them heading back into post-punk territory. That said, the tension-filled guitar work and frenetic drum fills are almost overtaken by the reverberated cacophony of melancholic piano chords and the presence of Latin-rhythm cow bell. Elias Bender Rønnenfelt is still enigmatically sensual and sloppy with his vocals, which ponder the evolutionary trajectory from drunken "days of disorder" into a "sense of utopia."
Plowing Into the Field of Love will be in full bloom October 6, courtesy of Matador Records.
