New EP ‘Gold’ from IDA KUDO out now
The Danish/Japanese artist IDA KUDO is releasing her second EP ‘Gold’ on Friday November 23rd. Throughout the EP she manages to mix and match her mystical, Asian influences and her more cool, Scandinavian style into something entirely new – and it works perfectly.
She draws the listener into her own universe on this EP – her clear and beautiful vocals, her almost playful lyrics and her sharp production creates this deep, sensual, multi-layered universe, which is sure to catch the attention of everyone listening.
IDA KUDO has been compared to artists such as M.I.A., Janelle Monae, Björk and Santigold, and for good reason. Her sound and aesthetic has always been expertly put-together, and on her new EP ‘Gold’ she combines it all with a more mature vision – the project contains everything from huge, dramatic pop-tracks, to more emotional love-ballads and hard-hitting bangers.
IDA KUDO has received a lot of attention in 2018 – she has played at SPOT-Festival in Aarhus, Welcome to the Village in Holland, XPO North in Scotland and a couple of venues in London. She has received positive press from media in Denmark and regular airplay on Danish radio, but the praise doesn’t stop there – The British BBC Music Introducing, Amazing Radio and Radio Shoreditch have all played her music throughout the year. She has had articles written about her in Gaffa, Clash Magazine, Kaltblut Magazine, Ja Ja Ja Music etc.
IDA KUDO has been on an upwards trajectory for some time now and with her new project ‘Gold’, she is making a statement that she is now ready to take the next step up.
