Interview: Sigrid on “Mirror”, body image and the luxury of time

Norway’s Sigrid was planning on working in the Norwegian government’s Department Of Culture if it weren’t for her breakout EP Don’t Kill My Vibe that cracked international charting success and led her to the stages of Glastonbury and Reading.

The following year, the BBC named her the Music Sound of 2018 – no small feat considering her win was against the likes of Billie Eilish, Khalid, Rex Orange County and Lewis Capaldi. From there, she released her debut album Sucker Punch that featured her highest charting single “Strangers” and “Don’t Feel Like Crying”; and now she’s letting us in on what’s to come with “Mirror” – an anthemic body-positive empowerments that has listeners falling back in love with themselves.

For lovers of Vera Blue, Sigrid is an artist not to miss. We sat down to discuss her latest release, the ability to reflect on her own artistry, making a music video, killing plants and having time to sit and write.

“Mirror” is OUT NOW!
