Folk Bands and Artists
Ida Wenøe: 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” perhaps begin to delineate her skills.
Sure, she has the usual credible influences from Vashti to Joni, from Neil Young to Danish folk hero Sebastian; and there’s hints of Sandy Denny and Linda Perhacs. But to list artists she sounds like would be to miss the point entirely. As anyone who has witnessed a live show can attest, Ida Wenøe is very definitely Ida Wenøe.
