Singles: Don’t Kill My Vibe, Strangers, Sucker Punch, Don’t Feel Like Crying
Sucker Punch is the debut album by Norwegian singer Sigrid. It follows two EPs titled Don’t Kill My Vibe and Raw respectively.
I am so happy I stumbled upon Sigrid’s music. I think I was browsing a related artist page on some pop singers Spotify or Google Play page and thought “I wonder if this Sigrid person is any good?” and I immediately got excited when I saw the title “Don’t Kill My Vibe” because I thought it could be a cover of Kendrick Lamar’s song “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe.” I was pleasantly surprised to find a solid pop song that I’m surprised never made it to the top 40 radio stations here in the States. That kinda sums up how I feel about the whole album. It sounds like it should be on the radio while also having that indie pop charm of not being on the radio. There isn’t a single song on this album I don’t love.
