War – “Somme, Maggio”

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.
