Iceage Get Intimate with New "Shelter Song" Video
The track appears on their forthcoming album 'Seek Shelter'
Published Mar 24, 2021Last month, Iceage shared news of their Mexican Summer label debut and dropped a couple of singles to preview the effort, Seek Shelter, ahead of its spring release. Now, the band have shared another album cut, a slow-burner anthem titled "Shelter Song"
The track arrives alongside a super cozy music video directed by the band's longtime friend and collaborator, Catherine Pattinama Coleman, who offered the following statement:
As a childhood friend of theirs, it was important for me to showcase our friendship and the people we share everyday life with. 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 colour 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 take for granted.
As previously reported, Seek Shelter arrives on May 7 via Mexican Summer. The album recorded with Sonic Boom (a.k.a. Pete Kember of Spacemen 3) and marks even more experimentation from the unpredictable group, who have expanded to a quintet with the arrival of additional guitarist Casper Morilla Fernandez.
