I find it kinda crazy that I am writing about more and more Danish music releases than all of the other Scandinavian and Nordic countries combined these days. Although I am not complaining the slightest. The Danes have clearly pulled their socks up and are showing others the way forward. This weeks introduction to an emerging Danish pop act is the wonderful Helsinge raised alt-pop singer-songwriter Ida Laurberg. She is exceptionally good at penning emotively charged pop offerings. And has the voice of an angel. She also says, “I have never written a happy song“. Let us get to know Ida…

She enjoyed a viral hit with her debut release, “Puppy Dog Eyes“. Afterwards, people began making comparisons to Billie Eilish. But that was just because of Ida’s melancholy style of musicianship. From what I have heard of the music. It does not lead me to make such a similar assumption of her or the music at all. When presented with her latest track, “Personal Letters,” after giving it a spin. I noted her to be a powerful songstress, more in keeping with Hailee Steinfield or Anne Marie.

She (Ida), does not seem to have the similar tropes, most other Danish female pop singers have. Meaning I can usually pick out something of a Danish accent in the vocals. Ida does not exhibit this, nor in the style of the music. It is more broadly global of appeal. I really like the added dose of grunge on “Personal Letters“, because it heightens the frustration, bitterness and disappointment she emotes on this track. Because of…

“not having the nerve to confront people in my life when they do something that hurts me. Which ends up in me getting hurt and having my boundaries overstepped time after time”. Ida shares.

You should listen to Ida Laurberg if you like the lyrically-driven pop of songstresses like Julia Michaels, Zara Larsson, Maggie Lindemann and FLETCHER.
