In the last two years we have witnessed an incredible new talent in Sigrid. From the tiny town of Ålesund in Norway, Sigrid’s defiant pop was catapulted into the public consciousness with the zeitgeist defining ‘Don’t Kill My Vibe’ in 2017 with a colossal mind, attitude and voice. Today Sigrid releases her debut album Sucker Punch to critical acclaim, already praised across the board from the likes of NYLON, Paper, Rolling Stone, Fader, Elle, Billboard, NPR and more. The album includes the energetic ‘Strangers,’ as well as ‘Dynamite,’’ title single ‘Sucker Punch,’ and recent track ‘Don’t Feel Like Crying.’ The pop prodigy kicked off 2019 with a SOLD-OUT headlining NYC show at Brooklyn Steel, a performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and continues the year supporting both George Ezra in March on his mammoth arena tour, and Maroon 5 in June across UK and Europe; with more US tour date announcements from Sigrid coming soon.
A collection of thrilling contemporary pop, Sigrid says of her debut album: “There are ballads, there are songs about friendship, there are songs about having a crush, there are songs about business. The theme is that there is no theme. The pop genre is so broad that I feel I have so much freedom and space to make whatever I want to make.”
We have all witnessed an incredible new talent over the last two years: From her VMA nomination for “MTV Push Artist of the Year,” winning the BBC Sound of 2018 to storming the stage at Panorama and Coachella last year, selling out shows in both NYC and LA, and performing on both The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Sigrid’s unforgettably impassioned live performances have sparked mass appreciation and defiant, rebellious pop songs. With her Spotify following tripling since last year, and streaming numbers reaching almost 600M globally, the Norwegian sensation is undoubtedly set to continue her ascent with non-conformist and progressive attitudes to the femininity in the pop landscape.
