Sigrid: "Exciting times"
[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]With her 10/10 banger of a debut single, Sigrid is the latest up-and-coming pop star to come out of Norway.

Hey Sigrid, how are you today and what are we interrupting?
Hey! You’re not interrupting at all! I’m in NY promoting my debut single ‘Don’t Kill My Vibe’ at the moment. Exciting times.

What first got you interested in being a musician? Did you have a musical upbringing?
Well, I grew up surrounded by music. I remember a lot of Joni Mitchell and Neil Young on the speakers in our house. So I can thank my family for making me interested in music!

How did you end up signing with Island Records?
I started doing writing session the spring of 2016 in London after I signed with Made Management, and soon the labels showed interest. A couple of months later I signed with Island UK and soon after Island US! I could not have asked for a better team. They’re great.

How do you go about writing a hit like your debut, ‘Don’t Kill My Vibe’? Is it an easy process for you?
Hmmm, it depends. The ‘Don’t Kill My Vibe’ session was really fun! I wrote it with Martin Sjølie in Oslo, and it was just a really nice experience.

Are you creative in other ways aside from music, too?
Haha! I’m terrible at drawing. I danced for ten years-ish (ballet, modern, jazz and hip-hop), and theatre for five years. I miss it! Maybe this is a sign.

What are your favourite places to draw inspiration from?
If my head is a place, I’ll say that. Everything I write (except one song per today) is personal. I just find it easier to write it, if I have felt it myself.

What do you do for fun?
Google “cats” plus “meme”.

What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done, and would you do it again?
I wish I had a crazy answer for this one. This is so embarrassing; I can’t come up with a single crazy thing I’ve done. Well, a crazy thing I wanna tell you, haha.

What’s on your bucket list this year? Do you have big plans?
To stay best friends with my band after touring! They’re the best, and I miss them all the time.

Anything else we should know?
Wool socks. Life hack. Treat yoself. So comfy.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_video link="
