About this event
“witnessing a pop phenomenon” - Times
In the past six months, Sigrid has gone from unknown to the most exceptional breakout star of 2017. With a defining debut Glastonbury performance, ‘Don’t Kill My Vibe’ globally streaming at 40M, and two sold out Scala headlines in September, Sigrid’s arrival has been nothing short of extraordinary. Today Sigrid drops the video for ‘Plot Twist,’ the second single to be lifted from her debut Don’t Kill My Vibe EP. Plot Twist is another defiant anthem, twisting through melodic highs and expansive production. Sigrid says: “Plot Twist is about finally getting over someone, but when me and Sigurd Fossen/William Glandberger from FillIn Productions discussed how we wanted the music video to be, we decided we wanted the focus to be on me having a good time with my best friends. We filmed it in Bergen where I've lived for two years now, and it was the best day!!”
From the tiny town of Ålesund in Norway, but with a colossal mind, attitude and voice, Sigrid has quietly been creating a world which emboldens her followers, displaying amazing song writing ability with hard-hitting and empowering words, laced over unexpected and daring melodies. Performing on Later With Jools and The Late Late Show with James Corden – presented as Apple’s coveted ‘Up Next’ artist – Sigrid has had a huge festival season, storming the stages at Latitude and Longitude, Wilderness, and Reading & Leeds.
