Iceage have released ‘Shelter Song’, the opening track on their forthcoming album Seek Shelter. The song, which features the Lisboa Gospel Collective, comes with an accompanying video directed by Catherine Pattinama Coleman, who previously collaborated with the band on the ‘Ecstasy’ and ‘Forever’ visuals. Watch it below.
“As a childhood friend of theirs, it was important for me to showcase our friendship and the people we share everyday life with,” Coleman said in a statement about the video. “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.”
