IdaBjorg – You Make Me Proud To Be A
Release Date: 4th June 2021
It’s not often you get a song about female empowerment from a Danish-Icelandic singer-songwriter dressed in a sequined onesie and holding an octopus. In fact, I firmly suspect this is the first time I have received such a submission. Nevertheless, IdaBjorg releases ‘You Make Me Proud To Be A Woman’ and all of the peripheral stuff just melts away. A thumping beat and bass line is smoothed out by soft vocals and then some sparse guitar notes before the song swells in to something that wouldn’t be out of place in a Fleetwood Mac set but with a more modern approach to the arrangements. Sumptuous stuff.
