Your daily purveyor of art, glamour and rock 'n' roll

Ida Maria

Ida Maria

Ida Maria is a 25-yr-old Norwegian spitfire whose music is a frothy mix of punk, smoky garage rock, melodramatic folk influences and edgy forays into singer-songwriting territory. Her look is innovative, her style is unabashedly individual, her lyrics are relentless and provocative, and her formidable voice demands no less than the listener’s full attention. On her Myspace page, her self-bequeathed title is “Queen of the World” and after fully imbibing her musical aura, you’ll find yourself agreeing that it’s indeed a fitting tag. To take your own trip into Ida Maria’s world, download two of the strongest cuts “Stella” and “Oh My God,” from her debut LP Fortress Round My Heart, and you’ll see exactly what we mean.
