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.
“Ignite the sage effect. Let’s burn the bad, keep the good, hide your virgins, I’m back!” – Ida Maria
“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, Lana Del Rey, plus Emilia Clarke as Daenerys in Game of Thrones, Uma Thurman in Kill Bill, Angelina Jolie in Gia, 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.
