LIVE | Sigrid | Summer 2019
I first heard of Sigrid from my friend Lauren - she sent me a super vibey remix of “Don’t Kill My Vibe” which I loved, but then I saw the acoustic video which I really loved. I made my friends watch every version of “Don’t Kill My Vibe” on repeat. It is a jam and I loved the attitude and confidence of this 20 year old Norwegian singer (especially in the stripped down acoustic version). It’s captivating (side note - straight on profile shot style videos are amazing to me - simple backdrops, no special effects, just communicating the emotion and personality of the singer).
Two years later I jumped at the chance to see all of that translate to a live show. Plus I’m Norwegian (ancestry-wise) too so it was a no brainer. It was a good time - she has a repertoire of infectious pop songs and delivers each of them genuinely and enthusiastically. Emphasis on the genuine - joy and energy supplant any pretension or production many pop stars fall into. She’s a lot of fun - don’t miss her if you have a chance to catch a show!
