Copenhagen's 'Iceage' Release "You're Nothing"


Copenhagen's 'Iceage' Release 'You're Nothing'

"Jagged, sonic hardcore collides head-on with a post-punk act" Kill Your Stereo

"High on energy, heavy on noise… it’s an exhilarating rush of in-your-face songs" Pretty Much Amazing

The Guardian

"Young Danish punks create a beautiful noise for the worldwide disaffected" BBC

"From the opening notes of brutal and ironically named Ecstasy, it’s clear that there’s no messing around with Iceage…These Danish wild boys haven’t lost it" the music.com.au

You’re Nothing, the new album from Iceage is out now via Matador / Rhythmethod.

The album was recorded & produced by Iceage in Copenhagen and Møn, Denmark.

Just out of their teens, it seems Copenhagen’s Iceage have only added to the anxiety and tension that made their debut album, New Brigade, so compelling. But now, with two years of touring behind them, they’re challenging their raging emotions instead of simply expressing them.

When watching Iceage live you get the feeling the songs could be just about to fall apart before they miraculously recover, always rewarding you with a climax. It’s this menacing energy found in their shows that’s more forceful on You're Nothing. The guitars flay violently and the vocalssound furious at times, but they’re also far more melodic and dynamic than on their debut.‘Morals’ displays this wider range in emotion, using piano for the first time, repeatedly winding up anticipation before Elias franticly unleashes the questioning “Where’s your morals?” The album finale and title track ‘You’re Nothing’ contrasts New Brigades’ closer ‘You’re Blessed’, best demonstrating the cohesion they’ve now achieved.

You're Nothing is the sound of a band pushing their singular mix of punk, Goth, hardcore, and post-punk to even further extremes. In doing so they create an overwhelming number of different ways in which to write a short, aggressive rock song, with each element vying for attention.Taking You’re Nothing as a moment, it captures four boys making the successful transition to becoming challenging young men. It makes youwonder - they’ve already made such a leap in the past two years, so what will they sound like in three years time at age 23?

You’re Nothing pushes Iceage’s singular sound to further extremes. Twelve examples of the myriad ways Iceage have written, and re-written the short aggressive rock song.
