100% The Line of Best Fit
80% Music OMH If you thought lead single Strangers was epic, you’ll be surprised by how simply irresistible the opening two tracks are.
80% New Musical Express Even some of indie’s biggest crossovers in recent years have attempted to digest the new power dynamics in music by appealing to that very audience.
80% Irish Times A striking wilfulness, underpinned by empowering messages, sets Sigrid apart from many of her contemporaries.
80% God is in the TV And of course it has that quivering chorus line which so enthralled Dame Helen Mirren on the Graham Norton TV show.‘Mine Right Now’ is a strange sort of song.
80% The Arts Desk And while those big choruses might feel a bit stale once you see them coming (probably by 'Sight of You'€, if you're listening straight through rather than sprinkling these confections liberally through your 'Prosecco Hangs' playlists the way nature intended), Sigrid has a way of elevating even the most throwaway tracks.
80% Clash What’s carried Sigrid so far is her electrifying pop touch, those searing vocals and a lyrical touch that translates the everyday into something truly magical.
80% Drowned in Sound In the six years building up to the release of her debut album, Norwegian singer Sigrid has built up a musical CV so polished that it’s almost suspicious.
80% The Skinny The bouncing 808s of Don’t Kill My Vibe tick off pop producers trying to control her while Strangers' crisp synths and massive chorus hit like a monumental sugar rush.
80% Loud & Quiet Comparisons to Charli XCX and Sia may come easy on tracks like ‘Sucker Punch’ and ‘Basic’, but a closer listen echoes with the lawless musical nature of The Slits on ‘Business Dinners’, while the influence of the epic scenery of her town (Bergen) brings a touch of the myth and mystique of Roxy Music elsewhere.
80% Pop Matters Island 8 March 2019 Other than just having the visceral (and valid!) response of "it's catchy", it can be hard to pin down why a debut like Norwegian singer Sigrid's stands out amongst the crowd.
70% Exclaim! Music Sigrid Sucker Punch By Brad Garcia Published Feb 28, 2019 7 When you've already garnered international acclaim and indisputable commercial success before the release of your debut album, the expectations that follow are likely unrealistic.
70% GIGsoup Two EPs, one single and a contribution to the Justice League soundtrack later and Sigrid is making the album jump.
67% Nöjesguiden Tyvärr är de redan släppta singlarna bättre än de nya spåren, men med den här debuten ur systemet är jag extremt pepp på vad som kommer komma ur Sigrid framöver.
67% Gaffa (Sweden)
60% DIY Magazine
60% The Guardian It was a vivid, memorable combination and a remarkably effective branding exercise, singling Sigrid out from the stream of young Nordic artists that have attempted to break Britain in recent years.
