When Iceage formed in 2008, the band had an average age of 17 and created some of the most brutal punk rock that had ever hit our ears. Since then their sound has evolved and their upcoming album Beyondless is the best they’ve ever sounded. It’s their most accomplished, crafted, and moving record yet – the culmination of their three albums so far, finding an assured, meticulous, yet untamed band creating the most thoughtful and dramatic outsider rock there is.
Featuring violin, trumpet, saxophones, trombones to add to their brooding rock it’s the sound of a band catching up with their ambitions. Just listen to the majestic Sky Ferreira-featuring “Pain Killer”, the latest single from Beyondless, where the music soars and swaggers seductively. And their thrilling live shows prove they’ve not lost the rich character of their brash beginnings – they’ve just let in a bit more light.
