What’s this? After her ‘Raw’ EP, Norwegian superstar Sigrid is now back with some more new music for us. ‘Sucker Punch’. And a music video for it, which she released today.
What does Sigrid say? “Sucker Punch is one of my favourite songs so far and I’ve been so excited for release day! Emily Warren, Martin Sjølie and I made it when we were in Ocean Sound Recordings in my hometown a while ago. The song is just a result of our usual way of working: talking, cooking, strolling, singing, dancing, experimenting…! Ugh it was so fun – just like the track itself.”
What does Scandipop say? What starts off as an albeit enjoyable change of direction into slight r&b, soon does a u-turn into what we now know as classic Sigrid. Brilliant pop music with an absolute knock-out of a chorus and a post-chorus. A sucker punch, if you will.
You can find ‘Sucker Punch’ on our Best New Pop playlist.
