PLOWING INTO THE FIELD OF LOVE
the 3rd album from Copenhagen’s ICEAGE is bold, brutal & forceful, Channeling the rage & emotion of their tempestuous early releases into finely honed musicianship.
'Plowing Into The Field of Love' features piano, mandolin, viola & organ atop Johan Suurballe-Wieth’s razor-sharp guitars & the lolloping, synchronized rhythm section of Jacob Tvilling Pless & Dan Kjær Nielsen. The record has a clear, uncompressed sound & Elias Bender Rønnenfelt’s desperate vocals are out front, nakedly accountable for the words. At the other extreme, the album tends to a sort of euphoria, especially in the unexpectedly upbeat country number 'The Lord’s Favorite'”. However, desperation & loss lurks behind every aspect of this darkly intriguing record. for fans of everyone from bright eyes to nick cave to white lung. "A country & western album that Nick Cave would cook up if he were possessed by Ian Curtis’ ghost" 4/5 - diy, "the most thrilling ricky thing they could have done" 8/10 - nme.
