Listen to “Iodine,” New Song off When Saints Go Machine’s Infinity Pool

LISTEN TO WHEN SAINTS GO MACHINE’S “IODINE,” SECOND SINGLE OFF
NEW ALBUM, INFINITY POOL, OUT MAY 28 ON !K7 RECORD

 

When Saints Go Machine release their sophomore album, Infinity Poolon May 28th on !K7. It’s an album born out of an atmosphere of chaos, showing the band — Nikolaj Manuel Vonsild (vocals), Jonas Kenton (keyboard), Simon Muschinsky (keyboards), and Silas Moldenhawer (drums) — operating outside of their comfort zone, an approach leading to great results for this four-piece from Copenhagen. As with debut album Konkyliemost of the productions consist of layers built upon layers in each song, however, with Infinity Pool, they aimed to make each layer sound immediate and simple resulting in a harder, darker, slower and more synthetic feel. Regardless of approach and environment, Infinity Pool still retains that signature When Saints Go Machine longing feeling, the glue that holds the album together. Following “Love and Respect” feat. Killer Mike, listen to Infinity Pool‘s second single, “Iodine,” below.

PRAISE FOR “LOVE AND RESPECT” FEAT. KILLER MIKE” AND “IODINE”:

“When Saints Go Machine’s general prerogative of making filmic music fronted with Arthur Russell-redolent vocals is entirely upheld here, though the presets and sounds on ‘Iodine’s’ electronic production are particularly well-crafted, and the flip from minor key to major for the hook is thereby particularly sublime. Recommended listening . . .” — Stereogum

“[Iodine] is filled with hooks and rhythmic echoes that send you into a shadowy daydream you may never want to leave.” – The FADER

 

” . . . the first single from the forthcoming Infinity Pool defies expectations again. Curiously, Killer Mike plays the lead performer here, riding the blend of beats and soft tones with commanding ease. But then vocalist Nikolaj Manuel Vonsild brings his sweet voice to the break, almost a guest on his band’s work for once but providing the key central anchor nonetheless.” — Pitchfork

 

“‘Iodine’ blends soulful, warped vocals with an off-kilter, cinematic groove . . . ” — SPIN

 

“The selection of Killer Mike as guest MC on this, the lead single from the band’s upcoming sophomore album, ‘Infinity Pool,’ is both beguiling and the best thing ever.” — Billboard

 

“a percussive thumper slathered with hyperactive synths and frontman Nikolaj Manuel Vonsild’s quietly affecting falsetto which quickly reaches up into the rafters.” — Beats Per Minute

 

“Weaving together a deep, bumpin’ groove and cool, tingly vocals, ‘Iodine’ is a slick, yet booming and serpentine number that quickly wraps itself tightly around the listener . . .” — Consequence of Sound
