LISTEN: Ida Wenøe – ‘Circus Season’

Danish singer-songwriter Ida Wenøe’s new single, ‘Circus Season’, feels magical. Sharing her experiences as a female musician travelling the world alone, Wenøe plunges you straight into the pages of an Angela Carter novel.

She confesses how she kissed the ‘devil’ on the last night of a US tour: He was wearing the mask of a magician, but his horns were still showing…”

In many ways, ‘Circus Season’ feels like a fairly straightforward folk song. But the slow, quiet strum of Wenøe’s guitar really brings her otherworldly voice to the fore. And by the time the echoey harmonies kick in, your ears are filled with the track’s captivating beauty.

Powerful and ethereal, ‘Circus Season’ puts Wenøe in good company – think Joanna Newsom, Kate Bush and Bat for Lashes. I can’t wait to hear more.

 

‘Circus Season’ is out now via Integrity Records/Songcrafter Music.
