Elias Bender Rønnenfelt, frontman for jittery Danish punks Iceage, has a new side project called War, who could not possibly sound less like the Latin funk band with the same name. Instead, this War is a duo with Sexdrome’s Loke Rahbek, and they specialize in murky, diffuse, dark tracks that use loops and electronics. Below, listen to their track “Somme, Maggio,” their side of a split release with the Swedish band Lust For Youth. It’s five minutes long, the length of about four Iceage songs.

The split 7″ is out in March on Avant!; there’s already a limited cassette version out.

  1. this sounds better than Iceage for me.

  2. was hoping this was by, you know, the actual War. pretty lame of these dudes to straight up jack their name like that

  3. It’s very dense and crackly, and while I don’t think it’ll be on the same level of what Iceage does, it’s a pretty interesting listen that works as good background music in these colder months.

  4. can’t wait for the next Iceage side project, I hear the drummer has a band called Led Zeppelin. should be pretty sweet.
