Inmitten von digitalen Gebirgsketten übersät mit Folk-Bands und Singer-Songwriters ist es ein seltenes Wunder einer Höhle voller Juwelen, wie der unter Ida Wenøe’s Brustkorb zu begegnen.
Obwohl sie ein offensichtliches Verständnis für Americana hat, ist ihre Musik aber deutlich durch englischere Untertöne gekennzeichnet. Als ob das Beste aus dem Nordic Noir das dänische Festland verlässt, klingen die Aufnahmen akustisch rein und schmutzig zugleich. Dabei erlebt man eine geteilte Einsamkeit, die einem so gar nicht einsam fühlen lässt. Und immerzu ist da diese Ehrlichkeit gegenüber dem Songwriting, dessen faszinierende Satz-Akrobatik nur in einem Herzen entstehen kann, welches in einer fremden Sprache träumt.

En
„… a childlike fragility that makes the songs sound like whimsical folk for fairy tales with a sinister undertow. Her voice – weary but cute, with the power to cut through – is perfect; she sounds like the young narrator of her own magical-malevolent fantasies…”
The Guardian

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.

While she has an obvious appreciation of Americana, her sound is very definitely laced with more English undertones: the kind of sound Edward Woodward might have heard downstairs in the local inn had the Wicker Man been filmed in a remote Danish village, while Sarah Lund scoured for clues in her jumper. Like the best of the Nordic Noir leaving the Danish mainland, the recordings are at once both sonically pure and grimy; there’s a shared loneliness that makes you feel that you’re not at all; and all the while there is an honesty to the songwriting that tugs at your sleeve. While her grasp of English is second nature, there’s some of those intriguing turns of phrase that only a heart that dreams in another language can weave:

“The deep conceals things that are real/ look beyond the mirror/look beyond the mirror” ,
“I know we see things differently/as long as it’s not separately” and “You’re a fish in a bottle/a cock in a coop/the essence of trying…”
