When Norwegian pop starlet Sigrid released her breakthrough debut LP 'Sucker Punch' in 2019, it was greeted as one of the most groundbreaking releases in the pop world for years. Despite finding huge amounts of commercial success along the way, there was something deeply refreshing about her sound, showing that she wasn't interested in simply becoming another teenage sensation with no substance to her music. And after a few years to figure out her next move, she returns with her highly-anticipated sophomore effort 'How To Let Go', a record that continues her impressive streak to date.
What has always stood out about Sigrid is her fondness for the killer hook. While many in her place simply regurgitate the same tired ideals, stolen from everyone around them, she manages to find something new and interesting to explore, and this is exactly what we get again on 'How To Let Go'. There is this strong organic drive within her sound that comes off less artificial than her contemporaries and allows her to really venture into almost untouched territory as she builds a monumental aesthetic that comes back with sheer power and gusto from start to finish.
With a debut record as good as 'Sucker Punch', there was never any doubt that 'How To Let Go' would also stand tall within her repertoire to date as well. Sigrid continues to discover something captivating about her own sound throughout this new collection, making for a wildly enjoyable listen.
