The debut book from acclaimed musician Elias B. Rønnenfelt, Sunken Heights is a work of poetry in a grand tradition: a quest in verse through reverie and observation, equal parts enigmatically abstracted and grittily real. Designed in collaboration and featuring original artwork from Elizabeth Peyton and presented in both the original Danish text and Rønnenfelt’s own English translation, Sunken Heights balances the poet’s reflections on the aggressive and primal present with strikingly romantic and surprisingly vulnerable musings on variations of love, delusion, and maturation in a smoldering world.
Elias B. Rønnenfelt is a Danish musician and poet. He is lead singer and lyricist for Iceage, in addition to his work as a member of Marching Church, Vår, and numerous other groups and collaborations. Sunken Heights is his first book.
Elizabeth Peyton is an American artist whose work has been featured in the National Portrait Gallery, the Whitney Museum, The New Museum, and the Museum of Modern Art, among many others.
