Sigrid: The Singer To Watch
by Kara Godfrey
If you’re looking to update your Spotify playlist this summer, then you need to check out new gal-on-the-block Sigrid.
The 20 year-old Norwegian singer has been compared to Lorde for her raspy tones throughout her debut single Don’t Kill My Vibe, and was signed by Island Records at just 16 years old. The EP is one we’ve definitely been listening to on a loop ever since we heard it and this single is all about the sass.
With some great clap-back vibes such as ‘You think you’re so important to me don’t you’ and ‘Guess you’re surprised I’m the puzzle you can’t figure out’, it’s a great slow starter that rolls into stronger drums and synth alongside her powerful vocals for a song full of attitude. Like with many great artists, you can’t help but want to belt out the lyrics whilst in the shower.
Music is in her veins, with her brother and sister both musicians. She’s since headed to Bergen where the indie music scene is, so there are high hopes for her to become the hottest talent this year.
She’ll be playing in Manchester at The Deaf Institute on May 15th, so check her out before she gets huge.
