Norway's pop diva Sigrid releases the music video for "Sucker Punch" today. Selected as Vevo's latest LIFT artist, "Sucker Punch" will premiere on Vevo's YouTube channel.
Sigrid Solbakk Raabe, aka Sigrid, released her debut single, "Sun," in 2013. The song's success led to a deal with Petroleum Records and performances at multiple festivals, like Øyafestivalen. In 2016, she signed with Island Records, releasing "Don't Kill My Vibe," which charted internationally. Her debut EP, also named Don't Kill My Vibe, followed shortly thereafter.

She performed at the Reading Festival in 2017, and her cover of Leonard Cohen's "Everybody Knows" was a highlight of the Justice League soundtrack. One year later, she won BBC Music Sound's award, as well as Newcomer of the Year at Spellemannprisen. In the summer of 2018, Sigrid released her second EP, Raw.
Sigrid's debut album, Sucker Punch, is slated to drop March 2019, followed by a tour with Maroon 5 throughout Europe, and George Ezra's 2019 U.K. tour.
"Sucker Punch" opens on pulsing synths and crisp, tight percussion. Initially, the tune exudes hip-hop-lite flavors, but then ramps up to shimmering, glossy pop colors atop an infectious rhythm riding a potent bass line and syncopated drums.
Sigrid's unique voice has a range of timbres, from tight, rasping tones to melodic sonority. It's a magnetic, galvanizing voice, full of feeling. A keening guitar corresponds to her upper register tones, adding enchanting textures.
"Sucker Punch" is off-the-chain superb, rife with sparkling energy and Sigrid's irreplaceable voice.
