Sigrid Opens Up About 'Strangers' and Making Sad Songs To Dance To
EXCLUSIVE! The MTV Brand New For 2018 nominee talks Glastonbury and how her family convinced her to do music...
Before 'Don't Kill My Vibe' and 'Strangers', the 21-year-old thought about being a lawyer before her parents did the impossible and told her to follow her dreams.
Watch our exclusive Brand New For 2018 interview with Sigrid here:
"My parents told me after high school that I'd probably regret it if I didn't try it so I can thank them for that."
Wait... This is not what happens in High School Musical 3!
Sigrid's brother also played a part in his musical journey as he gave her an ultimatum that required her to write an original song if she wanted to perform alongside him, and the rest is history.
From then she went on to write mega-bangers like 'Plot Twist' and, of course, the brilliant 'Strangers' that is currently climbing up the UK Singles Chart like crazy.
Of 'Strangers', Sigrid says the song is "about that feeling of wanting something to be something it's not."
"It's a sad song but it's a type of song that makes you want to cry and dance at the same time, which are my favourite club songs."
Isn't that everybody's favourite kind of song? If not, they clearly haven't listened to Sigrid and are seriously missing out.
