Cory, by way of Dan, sent me a link to his LaLa account and had me listen to some new music by Ida (Eee-da) Maria. She's a 25-year-old Norwegian singer/songwriter.
And she's awesome.
From Wikipedia: "Sivertsen (her full name is Ida Maria Børli Sivertsen) is reported to have the neurological phenomenon of synesthesia which, in her case, means she envisions colours when she hears music."
I think she sounds a lot like Bjork, but filtered through Chrissi Hynde. Bought her new CD on iTunes and am digging on it.
Ida Maria, your Video Friday:
"Queen of the World"
"Oh My God"
"Drive Away My Heart"
