Share new song ‘Take It All’
New album Beyondless out Fri 4th May
Copenhagen’s Iceage will release their fourth album, Beyondless, on May 4th via Matador Records / Remote Control Records. Having previously shared ‘Catch It’ and ‘Pain Killer’ featuring Sky Ferreira, the four piece now present the decadence of new single ‘Take It All’. Augmented by the transcendent violin of Nils Gröndhal, ‘Take It All’ may be the song off Beyondless that best shows the very special cohesion of these four childhood friends and musicians, and the striking progression in their performances and production. Elias Bender Rønnenfelt pleads:
While there was an air of a paradigm shift And men were dying for the death of the west Oh yeah And the last thing I ever wanted to see was these brand new sparkles Coming from your ever loving God damned eyes Yeah
If you want it You can have it If you want to reap me Take it all away
Beyondlessshows the four-piece – Elias Bender Rønnenfelt (vocals, lyrics), Jakob Tvilling Pless(bass), Dan Kjær Nielsen (drums), and Johan Wieth (guitar) – finally catching up with their ambition, all the while retaining the rich character of the band’s brash beginnings. Throughout their career, the band’s charm has rested in their running ahead of themselves with blind confidence; on Beyondless, they are treading with a disarming assurance, but no loss of charm.
