Island Records seem to have convinced the music press that Sigrid is the next big thing in pop. Her singles haven't quite caught on, but she's gaining some traction and getting great feedback from music festivals.

Third single Strangers is a bop.

failed bop.
I think if this one doesn't succeed, they'll drop her or make her regional like they did with some Norwegian acts.

I hope this blows up, it would fit well alongside Rita's Anywhere on radio.

Oh I'm glad she's getting exposure with this! B-List on Radio 1 too.

Impressive performance, the crowd seemed to be genuinely into her.

#49 on iTunes but nowhere to be seen on the Spotify chart. December is a tough time to push a new single with all the Christmas music clogging up the charts. If radio are still supporting this post-Christmas it could take off, but it could just as easily get lost before then.

Oo, I like this on the first listen. Didn't like any of her other songs I had heard.

Great song. Hope it does well for her.

I still think «Known you Forever» is her best song. I don’t understand why they’ve removed it from Spotify (and YouTube)

She's on the Radio 1 playlist but not on Hot Hits UK or Pop Rising which have over 1m followers.
