The dangerous new track is from an upcoming EP of the same name.
The sheer energy in display on new Ida Maria release ‘Dirty Money’ is infectious. The track will rapidly take you from ‘about to fall asleep’ to ‘lets go and fucking smash up everyone who has ever upset me ever’ within an instant, in the best way.
Everything from its pumping, anthemic instrumental, to Ida’s sore-throat inducing vocals, to its brash rockstar music video is as inescapably fun and memorable as it is volatile and raw. The track seems to have perfectly bridged the gap between intensity and accessibility, both gritty and raw while feeling impossibly invigorating and galvanising. ‘Dirty Money’ is nothing short of an anthem. A powerful statement against capitalism, against the man, against anybody who has wronged you and taken what is yours. This is glorious defiance in its bluntest form.
