It was only last week that Norwegian songstress Sigrid gave us the vibey track “Plot Twist” in the lead up to the release of her debut EP. But she’s decided that one isn’t enough and unleashed an acoustic rendition of unreleased song “Dynamite” and my emotions were truly not prepared. Honestly, this is one of the saddest and most heartbreaking songs I’ve heard in a long time. The arrangement is beautiful, simple and focuses on her emotional and raw vocal delivery. There is something about this track which is so strong and powerful that you could almost hear Adele performing it. “I don’t belong in your universe, for better or for worse”. // “Its so cold here cause I left my heart to be with you”. I personally don’t want to hear the song any other way and think she should just keep it stripped back and allow her incredible vocal delivery to tell this story. This song absolutely blew me away and just proved the versatility that she has to offer and that she is the most exciting newcomer this year. This is just one of those beautiful songs that if you’ve had your heartbroken it will hit you in the feels and may even reduce you to tears like the first time I heard it, and the second and the third.

This sounds intriguing. I must go and find it to listen to. There’s something special about acoustic versions of songs because they let the words and voice breathe.
