LIVESound: Iceage - NYC 1/25 - 26/13


Notoriously difficult interviewees Iceage are no fans of doing the press junket despite their sophomore effort You're Nothing being a highly recommended creative peak for the Danish post-punks, but Pitchfork found a creative way to capture the band's distant relationship with their intimate small-spaced audiences during their recent string of dates in New York City this past January. Iceage - NYC 1/25 - 26/13 is a short film directed by punk-minded visual artist and label owner Cali Thornhill Dewitt that chronicles the rough-mannered Copenhagen quartet's journey to the Big Apple as they played a show at 285 Kent and the "Thrown Together" gallery event at Home Sweet Home in Brooklyn. The three-minute black-and-white viewing is gorgeously juxtaposing, as Iceage can be seen and heard performing the You're Nothing track "Morals" amid flashes of the city as seen through their eyes during that weekend, as well as the artwork displayed and created by the band's very own Elias Bender Rønnenfelt, VÅR's Loke Rahbek and Screaming Females' Marissa Paternoster, amongst others.
