IDA MARIA – “SICK OF YOU”
A SPILL EXCLUSIVE VIDEO PREMIERE
After several years away, Norwegian punk sensation Ida Maria returns with a new video for the single “Sick of You,” the perfect rock n roll kiss-off to her tumultuous past. A blistering anthem that encapsulates the chaotic energy of her recent history and the frustration of dealing with people and circumstances that vex you, “Sick of You” echoes how most people felt about 2020 and anchors her forthcoming EP release featuring five new songs.
“Sick of You” struck such a nerve with fans, that it inspired one of them, Santiago D.A. to create a deepfake video for the single wherein the faces of iconic women including Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey, and Lady Gaga are swapped out for Ida Maria’s face, creating a powerful message of feminine defiance and empowerment that radiates across time. It also raises the question of the male gaze and archaic beauty standards which Ida finds restricting.
Regarding the timing of her comeback, Ida Maria says, “I am a whole person with integrity today and I can say and do whatever I like and I want to use that opportunity to express myself.” Life is on an upswing for Ida Maria in 2021. She has said farewell to her ex, reconnected with her muse, remodeled her home, is hosting the #1 music television show in Norway and is taking control of her life in general. The release of the video is cathartic, a way of shedding the past and moving into the future. It’s a new year, she’s working on new music, and embarking on a new beginning.
“Sick of you is my commentary to 2020! We’ve had enough hate during this pandemic. If hate continues we will never get out of this alive. Let’s look to the future, I know I am.” ~Love, Ida Maria
Release Date: April 2, 2021
