Live Review: Sigrid // Somerset House, London – 11.07.18

Ever since her BBC Sound of 2018 breakthrough, Sigrid’s brand of infectious pop has captured the hearts and ears of her adoring fandom. Cool, laid back, and dispensing of the traditional pop clichés, Sigrid comes across as a down to earth, something rare in an up and coming poster.

While London flutters on the brink of a world cup semi-final, Somerset House is far from different. Packed for the arrival of Sigrid, the venue buzzes with a rare form of pre-show nervousness as people are glued to their phone screens.

Stepping onto stage Sigrid instantly whisks us away from our phones as the first bars ‘Haunted’ bounce across the venue walls. Injecting the gallery turned venue with a much-needed dose of excitement, Sigrid demands our undivided attention.

Stopping for just a moment to thank the crowd for “coming to the show instead of watching the football”, Sigrid is once again ready to go. Unleashing her latest single, ‘Schedules’, the last from her Raw EP.

As Sigrid flies through a set filled with pop driven bangers and soulful ballads, it’s easy to see what has turned the Norwegian singer into such a sensation. Her effortlessness bringing the stage to life as she can’t help but grin throughout her set.

Although hampered by minor technical glitches, the Sigrid’s performance is nothing short of incredible. As ‘Fake Friends’ pipes through the speakers, the crowd is grabbed by the frenzied energy of Sigrid. 

Drawing her set to a close with one of her biggest hits, ‘Strangers’,  it’s clear that Sigrid is destined for greatness, one she is fully equipped for.
