Formé en 2008 à Copenhague, Elias Bender Rønnenfelt (chant), Johan Surrballe Wieth (guitare), Jakob Tvilling Pless (basse) et Dan Kjær Nielsen (batterie) ont seulement 17 ans quand ils forment le quatuor post punk Iceage, émergence de la scène DIY de la capitale danoise. Enregistré en quatre jours, leur premier album New Brigade sorti en 2011, un condensé féroce de 12 titres en 25 minutes, leur apporte une certaine notoriété et leur permet de tourner en Europe et deux mois aux Etats-Unis où leurs prestations live poignantes ne font qu’améliorer le bouche-à-oreille. Repérés par Matador, les 4 garçons signent sur le label américain en 2012. Suit alors la sortie en 2013 de You’re Nothing, Plowing Into The Field Of Love en 2014, et prochainement Beyondless le 4 mai 2018 !

English

Copenhagen’s Iceage — Elias Bender Rønnenfelt (vocals, lyrics), Jakob Tvilling Pless (bass), Dan Kjær Nielsen (drums), and Johan Wieth (guitar) — will release their fourth album, Beyondless, on May 4th via Matador Records.

Beyondless radiates joy. It’s an album that shows Iceage finally catching up with their ambition, all the while retaining the rich character of the band’s brash beginnings. It’s important to pay attention to the journey, from New Brigade (2011), a juvenile delinquent take on post-punk, full of cold, distant condemnation, and onto the ecstasy of You’re Nothing (2013), shedding the more aggressive hardcore influence and dragging in more light, a tendency followed on Plowing Into The Field Of Love (2014). 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.

The album was produced by the band with Nis Bysted, and recorded all-analog by Mattias Glavå at Kungsten Studios in Göteborg, Sweden, and mixed by Randall Dunn at Avast Studios in Seattle. The album was played entirely by Iceage with additional performances by Nils Gröndhal (violin), horns by Kasper Tranberg (trumpet), Lars Greve (saxophones) and Morten Jessen (trombone).
