Though Elias Rønnenfelt is a frontman of few words, the dynamic sound and sharp lyrics of Iceage speak for the whole band.
They started with “The day the music dies,” followed by “Thieves like us.” Then, after talking about making their music in a tower and dropping out of high school, they closed the show with “Catch it.”
Since they were formed in 2008, Iceage has been singer and guitarist Elias Bender Rønnenfelt, guitarist Johan Suurballe Wieth, bassist Jakob Tvilling Pless and drummer Dan Kjær Nielsen. Though their sound has certainly evolved since then, their dark grittiness is still at the core of their new eclectic vaudville sound on “Beyondless.”
Listen below to the interview and session with Ty Segall unplugged, who talks about his new album “Freedom’s Goblin” which features Fred Armisen.
They debuted their new music along with some storytelling about the album between songs. You can learn more about their journey to “Summertime Songs” in our new short documentary we produced on the band after following them in their creative process for two years.
“Summertime Songs” is out now.
