Ida Kudo Proud
|IDA KUDO, who grew up in Denmark with a Danish father and Japanese mother, draws inspiration from her ethnic roots and together with Andrew Hunt has created a unique Scandinavian-Asian sound with a British touch in the production. The result is an eclectic mix embracing hip-hop attitude, 50s orchestration and backing vocals that range from graceful harmonies to chanting tribal choirs. All wrapped up in solid pop with an impeccable lead vocal in the front.
“We wanted to create something new. Sophisticated and credible, yet still pop. The songs are recorded with a musical depth and we worked hard at the songwriting; lyrics with something to say, verses that allowed complexity, balanced with choruses so catchy they’ll stick in your head all day”, says producer Andrew Hunt.
