Ida Metsberg is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter from Finland. Not too long ago, she released an honest indie-folk tune, entitled, “This House Will Be Haunted.”

“I’m not afraid of Paranormal Activity, I’m not afraid of the girl coming out of the TV. The only thing to make me too scared to sleep is if you weren’t sleeping right next to me. I’m not afraid of The Conjuring, I’m not afraid of the twins in The Shining. I could sit through them all and still be smiling if I knew you were sitting there next to me…

I’m not afraid of The Exorcist, I’m not afraid of my spirit being possessed. And if we ended up in A Quiet Place, I would not make a sound, I’d just stare at your face.” – lyrics

‘This House Will Be Haunted’ tells an intriguing tale about a young woman who shares a fading relationship with her significant other. Deep down, she’s afraid but somehow acts like she’s not. Also, she believes there’s a chance she might mess up what they have going on. Later, she tells her partner, “You’ve made yourself at home and I know this house will be haunted if you ever go.”

“They can keep their dumb movies and their scary parts. I know there’s nothing scarier than breaking a heart.”

“‘This House Will Be Haunted’ was born because I couldn’t get over the scary movies I was watching (spoiler alert: I’m not really as fearless as I claim to be in this song!). I lost sleep, was scared at night, and still kept watching horror movies. Eventually, I decided I had to write these movies in a song just to get them out of my head. I started writing and thought to myself, what’s scarier to me than these dumb movies?

The answer came as I was going through a breakup earlier this year: lost love is f***ing scary. The song is very typical Ida Metsberg style writing: simple guitar riff with unique and detailed lyrics and melody lines. I wanted the song to feel small and delicate, which is why there are no harmonies and very few instruments. Also, I’m a sucker for a great string arrangement and I think every song needs one, so here we are.” – Ida Metsberg explained

‘This House Will Be Haunted’ contains a superb narrative, pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies that will resonate well with fans of Sara Bareilles, Taylor Swift, and Carole King. The emotional tune possesses guitar-driven instrumentation flavored with indie-pop, indie-folk, and acoustic elements. Furthermore, “This House Will Be Haunted” serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear from Ida Metsberg in the near future as she continues to release new music.
