Iceage Release “Shelter Song”
“Shelter Song” out Now!
The Latest Single from the Band’s Forthcoming Record Seek Shelter Out May 7th
Iceage return today with “Shelter Song,” the latest single from their forthcoming album Seek Shelter. Following “Vendetta” and “The Holding Hand,” “Shelter Song” sounds fuller and brighter than anything Iceage have committed to tape yet. Elias Bender Rønnenfelt’s instantly recognizable voice is joined by the Lisboa Gospel Collective, who add an anthemic swell: “Come lay here right beside me // They kick you when you’re up, they knock you when you’re down.”
The video, directed by longtime friend and collaborator Catherine Pattinama Coleman, offers a rare, intimate look into the band’s life in Copenhagen amongst family and friends.
“Iceage asked me if I wanted to direct the video for ‘Shelter Song.’ As a childhood friend of theirs, it was important for me to showcase our friendship and the people we share everyday life with. So instead of making a video full of symbolism or a staged performance, I wanted to make a private and personal video close to our hearts. After a crazy year of COVID-19, the world in flames and structural racism peaking at such an extent, I wanted to create a meaningful piece, especially being a woman of color and fully in my third trimester. In the midst of a pandemic it’s important to remember that those of us who are privileged enough to have a roof over our heads, food, security, love and care, is something of great value. Love is not something one should not take for granted.” – Catherine Pattinama Coleman
