Sigrid has revealed the video for ‘Strangers’, directed by Ivana Bobic (Stella McCartney, Bloc Party), which captures Sigrid’s performance with the camera following her around a surrealist set, which constantly spirals and reforms. “It was a joy making it. We wanted to take this feeling of seeing things differently to what they really are. The one thing that is realistic is me dancing around in my usual way,” Sigrid tells i-D.
Sigrid’s rise has been swift from releasing her debut Don’t Kill My Vibe EP, which has amassed over 100M global streams – to playing Hoxton Kitchen, two sold-out Scala’s and announcing a Shepherds Bush Empire headline, all in ten months. ‘Strangers’ is Sigrid’s new single, produced by Martin Sjolie, the pairing behind ‘Don’t Kill My Vibe’.
From the tiny town of Ålesund in Norway, which sits at the entrance of a UNESCO-protected fjord surrounded by sea and mountains, Sigrid has been dotted across the globe, from the furthest edges of Norway, to Iceland and the US, with a performance at Glastonbury. From Latitude, Wilderness, Lollapalooza and Pitchfork Paris.
