Danish punk band Iceage have signed to Mexican Summer and released their first single for the label, ‘The Holding Hand’. The track comes with a video directed by Anders Malmberg. Check it out below.
“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,” Elias Bender Rønnenfelt explained in a statement. “Gently the swaying intensifies, feel it escalate. Reach out for the holding hand, it seems almost within scope now.”
“The band has such an amazing and soulful presence,” Malmberg said of the video. “My aim was to create a cinematic experience around image reflections that would tie in closely to the narrative and the emotional atmosphere of the track, and let the authenticity that the band radiates feel ever present.”
Iceage’s most recent album, Beyondless, arrived in 2018.
