AAA’s Hottest Record Of The Week: Sigrid, Raw

Norwegian pop sensation Sigrid is taking the fast track to world domination.

Since bursting on the scene last year with debut EP Don’t Kill My Vibe, the precociously talented 21-year-old has released one infectious track after another.

Now, after dropping newbie Raw, it’s the second time in as many months she’s taken AAA’s Hottest Record of the Week honours.

“A lot of my songs are a bit like elegant f**k-you anthems,” she said in a recent interview with The Australian. “I try to be honest. I just make the music that I would listen to, if it wasn’t me singing.

“I would never put out or promote anything that doesn’t feel 100 per cent me,” she added. “It must be really, really difficult to promote a song or image that you don’t love.

“That’s why I’m also quite stripped back with my clothing and my make-up.

“When I’m on stage, I don’t want to think about what I’m wearing. I just want to dance and have fun, and play my music.”
