RELEASES ‘STRANGERS’ VIDEO

BBC SOUND OF 2018 LONGLIST

 

Chosen as one of the BBC Sound of 2018 artists, Sigrid has gone from unknown to one of the most exceptional breakout stars, in less than a year. Now the Norwegian pop sensation drops the video for ‘Strangers’, directed by Ivana Bobic (Stella McCartney, Bloc Party), which captures Sigrid’s effervescent performance with the camera following her around a surrealist set, which constantly spirals and reforms. “It was a joy making it. We wanted to take this feeling of seeing things differently to what they really are. The one thing that is realistic is me dancing around in my usual way,”  

 

Sigrid’s rise has been unrivalled; from releasing her acclaimed debut Don’t Kill My Vibe EP, which has amassed over 100M global streams - to playing Hoxton Kitchen, two sold-out Scala’s and announcing a Shepherds Bush Empire headline, all in ten months. ‘Strangers’ is Sigrid’s arresting new single, produced by Martin Sjolie, the dream pairing behind ‘Don’t Kill My Vibe’, with lyrics of steel, meandering melodies and stark honesty, which embodies the natural, sincere talent Sigrid has become renowned for. At only 21-years-old, Sigrid has also given her vocals to the epic action adventure Justice League, with a powerful, haunting take on Leonard Cohen’s ‘Everybody Knows’, in cinemas now.

From the tiny town of Ålesund in Norway, which sits at the entrance of a UNESCO-protected fjord surrounded by sea and mountains, Sigrid has been quietly creating a world which emboldens her followers, displaying outstanding song writing ability with hard-hitting and empowering words, laced over unexpected and daring melodies. Gracing almost every festival stage this summer, Sigrid has been dotted across the globe, from the furthest edges of Norway, to Iceland and the US, and tipped by the BBC with a stand out performance at Glastonbury. From Latitude, Wilderness, Lollapalooza and Pitchfork Paris, the constant has been masses of crowds, building with each new performance, to the point where Roskilde Festival had to upgrade the stage size as over five thousand people clicked attending on the festival app. 2018 is waiting.

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.
