Ida Maria

Ida Maria, a 24-year-old Norwegian punky pop hellion whose debut album Fortress ‘Round My Heart, stocked with caffeinated rock songs about drinking and one-night stands, is finally coming to America after garnering rave reviews throughout Europe. Performing tight garage-pop tunes at a breakneck speed, Ida Maria sounds like a cross between Nico and the Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde. Her Fortress already spawned five singles in Europe, including the bubblegum blitzkrieg of “I Like You So Much Better When You’re Naked” and the boozy start-stop of “Oh My God.”   – Rolling Stone
