Danish indie darlings ICEAGE announced a new LP, called Seek Shelter,
out in May, a couple of weeks ago and shared two cuts so far, Vendetta
and The Holding Hand. Today they revealed another rad piece.

SHELTER SONG is both an intense and fiery
slo-mo melodrama with a profound impact.

Turn Up The Volume’s 15 KNOCKOUT TRACKS For February 2021

The best of the past month…

Turn Up The Volume‘s 15 Knockout Tracks for February 2021!
A fervid fusion of rhapsodic rippers and clashing crackerjacks.

‘One + One’DEATH FROM ABOVE 1979 (Canada)
New album Is 4 Lovers comes our way on 26 March and One + One
is the trash & slash lead-slam. Welcome back noiseniks. Hallelujah!

‘Coma-Inducing Gibberish‘ – PIZZA CRUNCH (Scotland)
The young gunslingers hit the bullseye again with this new stunner. A fab-tastic masterstroke to shut up all narcissists. Beware of getting too excited. It can lead
to a rock ‘n’ roll coma. Whatever! Go for it!

‘Middle-Finger’DROPKICK MURPHYS (Boston, US)
A booze-filled party cracker from upcoming LP Turn Up That Dial. A familiar
Pogues-like chant that unleashes the beer devil in all of us. Bottoms up!

‘Vendetta’ICEAGE (Denmark)
An intoxicating jam with a threatening pace. A glam power
punch from their new album Seek Shelter arriving in May.

‘Night Is Mine’ULTRA SUNN (Brussels, Belgium)
Combine D.A.F.‘s industrial vibes, Sisters Of Mercy‘s gloom and doom hallucinations and Depeche Mode‘s pop-noir thrills and you know it’s time for a dazzling party. It’s the title-track from their standout debut EP. Learn much more about this cool black leather duo from their interview with Turn Up The Volume!

‘Toxic’PUSSY RIOT (Russia)
The glorious Russian rebels hit again with a new cut from their upcoming EP. It’s an industrial-synth-whack going forth and back, bringing techno icons The Prodigy to mind.

‘Darkest Hour’N.O.A.H (Dublin, Ireland)
An instant killer with a harmonious, mood-boosting sing-along chorus and special guest the Booka Brass – Ireland’s first New Orleans style Brass Band – turning up the heat even more. Even in your darkest hour this vivid earworm causes an uplifting kick.

A mind-slashing, industrial drone that keeps on pounding and pounding until
the wall comes down. Hefty stuff, folks! Just the way I like it, any day, any time!

‘Ace Of Base‘ – THE FLAVIANS (Berlin)
Your feet and head’s movements get activated from the get-go. Unremitting piano bliss, glorious rhythm, pushed by a funky beat and colored with frisky vocals and cool sixties backing vocals. Synth-pop legends Eurythmics would say Sweet Dreams Are Made Of This.

‘Opaque Crater’RITUAL CLOAK (Cardiff, UK)
The power of resounding repetition here is just mind-boggling. In the end, you want the buzzing vibration of this adrenaline-charged tune on repeat in your head. And when this trip slows down for a brief moment it’s only to come back with even more dynamism. Top!

‘Apply The Pressure’ – MISLED CONVOY and KAT FIVE (UK)
The missing link between two vibrating hallucinations, Massive Attack‘s Teardrop and Leftfield‘s Original. Spacey, outlandish and far-out. Michael Hodgson AKA Misled Convoy creates a flying saucer vibe and Kat Five‘s futuristic thoughts and prophetic words of change reinforce the puzzling and obscure experience.

‘Soho Bedroom Party’THE HIDEAWAYS feat. TINY DYNO (UK)
Blissful synth melodiousness. Tremendously sticky flow. Glorious duet chorus. Sparkling orchestration. Play this boosting cock-a-hoop stunner out loud in your bedroom so your neighbors can enjoy these spiffing pop sparks too. Sonic magic!

‘Fade’VIOLET (Midlands, UK)
Imagine The Verve of the early days with madman Richard Ashcroft in the middle with their huge anthemic wall-of-psych-sound going sky-high. Add that cocksure Britpop swagger and you know that your stereo will shake, rattle and roll when this bittersweet amplified symphony bursts out of the speakers. A winner!

‘Oxygen’SEASIDE HEIGHTS (Sweden)
A shot of pop adrenaline. Oxygen causes rhapsodic titillations. You can sing along, hum along, whistle along while pirouetting yourself dizzy to the vibrant vibrations. Fresh air to forget your lockdown blues for a while.

‘There Be Monsters’ by FAR LANDS (USA)
A magnific sepia-colored musing. A tranquilizing stroll triggering your daily dream moments. McFarlane‘s warm voice takes you on a pacifying trip while a guitar gently weeps throughout the journey. This bluesy beauty invites you to forget the troubling reality we all experience for a while.

‘Shouts Of The Coal Mine’JONAS AND I (Finland)
This beauty resonates as if it comes straight from a Tom Petty album. Its country-pop-
rock feel glows, scintillates and glisters and when the enlivening chorus sets in, with
those Beirut-like warmth of ardent trumpets a satisfying smile will emerge on your face. Topnotch tune!

New Album New Single – ICEAGE Share ‘VENDETTA’

New sonic impulses…

20 February 2021

Danish boys band ICEAGE confirmed that
a new longplayer, called Seek Shelter is
planned for a May release.

Last month we appreciated slo-mo lead single
The Holding Hand and here’s cut number two.

VENDETTA is an intoxicating jam with a
threatening flow. A first-rate power blow.

“​Crime is the undercurrent that runs through everything.
If you don’t see it, you’re not looking. In its invincible politics,
it is the glue that binds it all together. ‘Vendetta’ is an impartial
dance along the illicit lines of infraction​.”
says frontman Bender
about the song.

Slo-Mo Passion – Danish Rockers ICEAGE With New Single ‘THE HOLDING HAND’

New sonic impulses…

4 February 2021

Who: Glamorous rockers from Denmark.


Frontman Elias Bender Rønnenfelt says: “The song lives in a slurred world, movements
are elastically stretched out and strength is found in weakness while you find it hard to tell
the difference between fume and matter. ​Gently the swaying intensifies, feel it escalate.
Reach out for the holding hand, it seems almost within scope now.”​

The new piece feels and sounds like Rønnenfelt is caught up in his own worried
world. It’s a passionate slo-mo meditation growing more intense along its way.

ICEAGE Shared Brand New Song ‘LOCKDOWN BLUES’ – All Profits Go To ‘Médecins Sans Frontières’…

2 April 2020

Danish rockers ICEAGE just shared a brand new song related to these surreal
days we all experience. LOCKDOWN BLUES is a blues injected cracker about
‘domestic quarantine’. You can download the track for 1 pound/dollar/euro
on Bandcamp, right here. All profits go to Médecins Sans Frontières.

I got the
Covid-19 Lockdown Blues
The only way out is through
A wraithlike peril spread across our seven seas
Empty shelves in barren streets
Confined domestic quarantine
How the itching for lost touch is deafening
Covid-19 Lockdown Blues

The band issued a statement about the goal of this new track…

Written in the wake of the lockdown on gatherings, borders, schools and life as we know
it, ‘Lockdown Blues’ is an attempt at addressing this troubled new reality during Covid-19.
We’ve felt the urge to touch base now that the physical touch has been suspended and contribute an effort to raise spirit In the face of adversity. All profits from Bandcamp
will proceed directly to Médecins Sans Frontières who right now are doing their best to
provide aid where it so urgently is needed the most. Our thoughts are with all those in
jeopardy to the many various horrors in relation to the crisis, those situated on the front
lines and those who are direly compromised. Stay safe, take care and keep up the good fight

22 March 2018

New album ‘Beyondless‘ by Danish noiseniks ICEAGE will be out early May. And today the band just shared another special taster off that upcoming LP.

Wow! A truly breathtaking experience. Here’s the audio clip…
