Genre: Indie/Rock/Punk

Label: Nesna Records

Strolling along, I see this party, its basically over. Condoms and syringes are strewn around the poorly maintained gardens. An ugg booted girl is throwing up in a hedge while a fugly boy holds back her hair in desperate hope of getting some tail later.

But I here this song. A song so good, it makes my week. I want to eat to it, I want to sleep to it, I want to drink to it, I will lose my mind to it. This is Ida Maria. A girl and her band making amazing pop music (not surprisingly from Sweden Norway!) that sounds like the Pixies having fun. They’ve supported Good Shoes but don’t let that taint your opinion off them. Actually that’s harsh. What I mean is they sound nothing like really.

Ida Maria- Oh My God

Smashing. I can’t claim this as a discovery really. Nialler9 was where I heard it from, but the cheeky git from MyOldKentuckyBlog had his ear to the ground and picked this out during CMJ in the states. Even The Guardian got there before me. Luckily this video came out 4 days ago, and no ones noticed so I’ll claim the video. Yay me. I’m so desperate.

MP3: Ida Maria-Oh My God [highly recommended]

MP3: Ida Maria- Louie

Mp3: Ida Maria- Going To Hell

Of course. Ida Marie need your money to afford herring to build up a layer of fat to get through the cold summer months in Sweden. So go to iTunes or buy “OMG” on hand numbered 7inch. I did as not only is something worth keeping, but I reckon could be a good investment, as we should be hearing a lot more from her in the future. Just today she did something for MTV and has an XFM live Session with John Kennedy in January. She also runs her own label (that Nesna one) which makes her even more cool. A possible hope for a Swedish Arts and Crafts?

Myspace: Ida Maria has enough friends to shake a stick at

Website: Its in Swedish

Shout out for our friend at ishooktheroyalthrone.com who has now strings together a series of songs on Goldsmith’s Uni Internet radio station Wired. I’ve been listening to this as I write and its definitely worth keeping an eye on to here his interview with British Sea Power. Competing with Colin Murray he is playing some very interesting stuff, and honestly has been some of the best music radio I’ve heard in a while. Join his face.

& we were there before all of them.

Ida is a fucking gem & should be preserved before the likes of Shitfork & Stereobum get their grubby hands on her & ruin her for other blogs.

p.s. she’s Norsk & happens to live in Sweden.

3. Katja - December 3, 2007

She’s brilliant. Oh My God’s been on Norwegian radio since spring as she won Urørt 07 (urørt literally means untouched and is a competition run for new bands each year by the Norwegian equivalent to BBC Radio 1). Her second single is on radio here now. It’s called Stella and is almost as amazing as Oh My God. Can’t wait to see her live someday!!!

Oh and I’ll repeat the above, she’s Norwegian, happening to have settled in Sweden. Nesna Records is named after her hometown Nesna in northern Norway.
