Watch :: Marching Church - Your Father's Eyes
Words: Linn Branson
There's something about Elias Bender Rønnenfelt's vocals that sound as if he is somewhere between boredom, inebriation and orgasm. On the latest track from his Marching Church side project, the Iceage man is once again thrust deep into world-weary reflection and longing.
'Your Father's Eyes' is also taken from the band's 'This World Is Not Enough' album to get the video treatment. Directed by Marching Church’s Kristian Emdal, Rønnenfelt looks suitably enigmatic, if slightly dishevelled, in a wide-brimmed hat and smoking a cigar, as he goes back over the past. It's a bit like watching an arty foreign film where you don't know what the hell it's all about, but the look and feel is riveting. Dirty Beaches' Alex Zhang Hungtai provides the sax accompaniment.
