DanCan welcomes IDA WENØE, the Danish folk noir artist who is working on the german release of her solo debut “Time Of Ghosts” which has been celebrated internationally.
Amongst a digital mountain range littered with accomplished folk-ish bands and singer- songwriters, it is a rare miracle to come across a cave so rich in jewels as the one beneath Ida Wenøe’s ribcage. Clash Magazine‘s description of her sound as being “bewitching acid folk with a deeply personal edge…” and Paul Lester’s comments in The Guardian that she “sounds like the young narrator of her own magical-malevolent fantasies…” line the tape heads up nicely.
The music of her debut was used by the Danish TV Dokumentation „De Smukke Piger“ (“the beautiful girls”) and result in a nomination as songwriter of the year at the Danish Music Award.
In tradition of the best nordic noir records, “Time Of Ghosts” found phonetic balance between purity and dirt which is create a cosy shiver. Her songs of loneliness give you a feeling of bonding and because of her honest songwriting suddenly you’re not alone anymore – like in her Song “Lyla“.
In UK people are already in love with Ida: BBC 6, The Guardian and a large number of digital music platforms are supporting the Danish singer-songwriter. And not least because of various performances in Europe she was increasing a large fanbase as well as media attention.
