SINGLE REVIEW: Sigrid – Strangers
Back in February Sigrid instantly became my favourite newcomer of 2017 when she released her MASSIVE debut single “Don’t Kill My Vibe”. Since then she has released an accompanying EP of ridiculously catchy and emotional material, toured Europe extensively, performed on James Corden’s “The Late Late Show” and is preparing for a even bigger 2018. Her new single “Strangers” hears her elevating her electronic pop sound to a whole new level with heavier polished synths that are ready to take over mainstream radio. “Like strangers, perfect pretenders. We’re falling head over heels for something that ain’t real. You could never be us, just you and I”. It’s definitely her most pop focused track with a hook that will be instantly stuck in your head from the first listen. The structure is perfectly curated with a soft indie-pop verse that is similar to her previous material but then launches into an electronic influenced hook. However the bridge is where she will have you captivated with its big anthemtic vibe. Every time I listen to this song I fall a little bit more and more in love. The very DIY structure makes you want to experience it live ASAP and show off your dance moves during the ridiculously catchy “You and I, you and I, you and I, you and I, you and I, you and I. Not like in the movies” breakdown. A pure banger.
