If January has you on auto-pilot then Copenhagen’s Iceage should snap you out of it like a stubbed toe.
Though their ages should be irreverent the fact that these four Danes are making such excellent noise in their teens marks them as talented as The Murder Of Rosa Luxemburg at their prime.
The music sits somewhere between DC hardcore and British punk but filtered via weirdness. The songs are all velocity but skewed and prone to shoot off at unexpected angles.
Their debut album New Brigade is available on Dais in the US and Escho in Denmark.
