Iceage – Simony (2014)

Iceage_-_Plowing_Into_The_Field_Of_Love_600_600

With one look at the tracklisting of Plowing Into The Field Of Love, one is immediately taken aback. At 48 minutes in length, with tracks pushing the five-minute mark, it’s a stark contrast to début New Brigade and You’re Nothing, which both fell short of thirty minutes in their total playing time. The question to pose however is whether these new songs are worthy of their extended length and whether they pack as much punch as their shorter previous work. The answer is a resounding yes to both of those questions. The collection of songs found on Field Of Love, use their extended playtime to enable Iceage to explore their darkest recesses, and find texture and gorgeous dark tones to heighten the confusion, aggression and self-loathing found in Rønnenfelt’s characters on Field Of Love.
