We Are Wolves
Around 2000, Alexander Ortiz and Vincent Levesque, both from the visual art world along with fellow Antonin Marquis formed a band with synths, bass, vocals and drums. In their own words the band likes to qualify their sound as “a post-punk landscape with analogue trees. Like rock after the postmodern explosion”. Nameless until 2002, it’s when Alexander showed up at the jam space with an home made shirt with a skull spiting a synth with the inscription « We Are Wolves » on it that they decided to name the band. The Wolves were born.
With Indie Pop said to be on the rise in the UK music’s scene, there could not be a more opportune time for Ida Maria. Mixing a dash of a Gallaghar’s gob, a sprinkling of Winehouse’s recklessness, a splash of Bjork’s pixie like chic with a large serving of Chrissie Hynde’s musical sensibility, a sizeable slice of her hero Iggy Pop’s live performance style, and not to mention a bucket load of infectious material, Ida Maria has all the ingredients necessary to make it Big.
