Sigrid

NEW SINGLE ‘PLOT TWIST’ OUT NOW

PLAYS MANCHESTER THE DEAF INSTITUTE 15 MAY

Norwegian pop sensation Sigrid has a huge summer ahead, starting in Manchester at Deaf Institute on 15 May, selling out Hoxton Kitchen in two days on 17 May, and festival appearances at The Great Escape, Latitude and Wilderness. Sigrid also announces her biggest headline to date, at London’s Scala on 13 September.

 

Last Friday, Sigrid revealed ‘Plot Twist’, the empowering follow up to remarkable debut ‘Don’t Kill My Vibe’. From the tiny town of Ålesund in Norway but with a mind, attitude and voice bigger than most 20-year-olds, Sigrid’s ‘Don’t Kill My Vibe’has been hailed as the biggest breakout song of 2017. Now Sigrid drops Plot Twist, another defiant anthem, twisting through melodic highs and expansive production. Sigrid says: Plot Twist is about finally getting over someone. I wrote it with Oceaán, consisting of twins Henry and George. They came all the way to Bergen, and we had so much fun!’

 

Displaying extraordinary song writing ability as a skilled lyricist, with hard-hitting and empowering words laced over unexpected and expansive melodies, Sigrid wrote her first song at 16-years-old and in just two weeks – when Sigrid’s older brother challenged her to write an original song and perform it at a local gig with him.

 

Now signed to Island Records and currently splitting her time between Bergen and London, Sigrid has quietly been creating a world which emboldens her followers, through the power of the song.

 

Sigrid’s debut EP Don’t Kill My Vibe is out on Island Records on 12 May.

.'Don't Kill My Vibe Acoustic' video & Headline London show on 17 May

 

With over 4.7M Spotify streams in just three weeks for a debut single, Sigrid’s arrival has been extraordinary. From a tiny town in Norway but with a mind, attitude and voice bigger than most 20-year-olds, the Norwegian talent today reveals the intimate acoustic visual to Don’t Kill My Vibe. “We filmed the video in my family home in Ålesund. I wrote a lot of tunes on the piano, read books in the conservatory, and sneak peaked in my parent's bookshelf ,” says Sigrid. Don’t Kill My Vibe is the first track to be lifted from Sigrid’s debut EP, set for release next month on Island Records. Sigrid will also be playing her first London headline show on 17 May at Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen, now sold out.

Displaying remarkable songwriting ability as a skilled lyricist, with hard-hitting and empowering words laced over unexpected and expansive melodies, Sigrid wrote her first song at 16-years-old and in just two weeks – when Sigrid’s older brother challenged her to write an original song and perform it at a local gig with him.

 

Born and raised in Ålesund, which sits at the entrance of a UNESCO-protected fjord surrounded by sea and mountains, it was as if Sigrid was always destined to drive the ten minutes across to the neighbouring island of Giske, and make music in the famously idyllic Ocean Sound Recordings.

 

Self-releasing her first song at High School and dropping a second track that was immediately playlisted on national radio, Sigrid moved to Bergen at 18 and was catapulted into the burgeoning music scene. Now signed to Island Records and currently splitting her time between Bergen and London, Sigrid has quietly been creating a world which emboldens her followers, through the power of the song.
