Saxophonist/composer Ida Rønshaugen's new album is striking, hypnotic
(Published: August 02, 2017)

Diverse, deep, and creatively fun, saxophonist/composer Ida Rønshaugen's second album Storm uses her Nordic musical roots in crafting eight striking songs. It is a busy album in the sense that every track has different flavors that will keep ears continually stimulated. Rønshaugen definitely imprinted her own identity on the record.

The first track, "A Dream of Spring," is dramatic and soulful. It has a dreamy vibe that will make your spirits at ease and inspired, especially from her rich, soothing saxophone. It can be described as a musical manifestation of nature's lullaby. What a lovely, calming way to introduce her style to new listeners.

"Old Pine" is like a mix of classical, world music, and jazz. Rønshaugen did an effective job of incorporating her Scandinavian influences in the song. There is a sense of melancholy and spirituality in this cut. It's easy to appreciate the passion in which the track was made.

The title cut is actually flashy and glamorous. True to its name, the song is untamed but mesmerizing. It uses a fast-paced tempo which produces a violent but very beautiful melody. This is definitely the right song to bear the name of the album, as it has the ability to hypnotize its listeners.
