New Music: Ida Maria – Celebration

Ida Maria is a Norwegian pop rock artist who Jane discovered for us last month through her track Dirty Money. Her new one is called Celebration and it’s a story of sex positivity delivered with the same punk energy.

By Graeme Smith

There’s nothing I could say to prepare you for the wild, fun energy of Celebration but I’ll give it a go. The track opens with chanting vocals accompanied by a subdued guitar riff. It is the calm before the storm. At the first chorus the full arrangement kicks in and its full of frenetic energy. Ida’s vocals never let up and if you’re not seduced by the end of the track, you need to have a word with yourself.

Celebration is the focus track of Ida’s new EP Dirty Money which has also been released today. You can find the EP here and listen to Celebration below.
