On the heels of the release of their new album, Beyondless, Iceage have shared a new video for album track ‘Under The Sun’. Filmed in Tokyo during their “Opening Nights” residencies, which was an inter-continental exhibition that saw Iceage collaborating with their favourite visual artists (also staged in NYC and LA). Watch below!
Directed by XXX, the ‘Under The Sun’ video features the vibrant, eye-catching floral designs of renowned flower sculptor, Azuma Makoto, who handpicked Iceage for his flower-music installation series titled Crazy Garden x Iceage. The band’s darkly beautiful and chaotic live performance is an unexpected, yet fitting, foil to the delicate blooms.
Beyondless was produced by Nis Bysted with the band – Elias Bender Rønnenfelt (vocals, lyrics), Jakob Tvilling Pless (bass), Dan Kjær Nielsen (drums), and Johan Wieth (guitar) – and recorded all-analog by Mattias Glavå at Kungsten Studios in Göteborg, Sweden and mixed by Randall Dunn.
The album was played entirely by Iceage with additional performances by Nils Gröndhal (violin), horns by Kasper Tranberg (trumpet), Lars Greve (saxophones) and Morten Jessen (trombone).
