Marching Church – “Heart Of Life” Video

Iceage frontman Elias Bender Rønnenfelt is back with a new Marching Church album this fall on Sacred Bones. Sophomore LP Telling It Like It Is sees Marching Church expanding from a solo project into a band of its own comprising electric viola/guitar player Johan S. Weith (Iceage), guitarist Bo Høyer Hansen (Hand Of Dust), bassist Kristian Emdal and drummer Anton Rothstein (both of Lower), and trumpet player Jakob Emil Lamdahl. The album’s lead single “Heart Of Life” is one of the most straightforwardly melodious songs Bender Rønnenfelt has ever released, but for all its brightness there are still shadows lurking around the perimeter. It’s a bit like Nick Cave covering a Bob Dylan song involving the phrase “fist-fucked by destiny.” Watch the band’s self-directed “Heart Of Life” video below.
