- To The Comrades by Iceage

Iceage are noisy lads from Denmark. They’re all dead young and they sound dead energetic, they don’t sound dead though. Yet.
Here’s a 7” of theirs that just arrived with two brand new tracks. ‘To The Comrades’ starts off with some wonky Daniel Johnston piano before the spiky Joy Division-esque punk rock kicks in. The lolloping bass and razor-neck pace of the drums are the gems here as it pulls you in whether you like it or not. I’ve just whacked the B side on and I thought I’d read the press release to see what the B side is called and I’m none the wiser. I am genuinely none the wiser. The B side is shouty with a murky pumpy bass line and some seemingly (but not) random new wave style drums.
Limited to 700 for the world!
8/10 Mark Customer review, 11th September 2014
This double sided single shows the change in sound from this young punk band. Both are covers and show different styles of music such as the rhythmic drum pattern on the track to the comrades. However the post-punk sound is still present with the fast bass lines and dramatic edge to Elias present vocal style.
