Ida Maria

Well, from something not as good as expected to something far better. Ida Maria performs to a crowd somewhat smaller than you might expect for someone who has just had a number two single, but possibly a number of people made the mistake I did of thinking that she was a one-or-two trick pony. Far from it, because there is enough in the performance she gives here to think that she could have a very successful career indeed. 'Morning Light' is full of bouncy enthusiasm, like a new puppy; 'Louie' is an extended thrash on a par with it's better known namesake and 'Stella' is plain simple fun. Of course, she ends with 'Oh My God' and 'I Like You So Much Better When You're Naked' and the crowd go wild, but then they were always going to.

Swedish girls who wear bowler hats and sing about getting naked will never be everyone's cup of tea, but frankly the problem is with them, not Ida Maria.

Cheese says: Bouncy, shouty music is always fine by me, so I loved her.
