SIGRID - 'Sucker Punch'
New video "Sucker Punch" cements the Norwegian star Sigrid’s rise to pop prominence. Directed by AB/CD/CD, the video is a confident, spontaneous, authentic pop-tastic visual.
“The video is a bit mad, and that’s the whole point, as there’s a lot going on in the song. It’s filmed in London and the set design was so good, what a team. I hope people have fun watching it; and dance, sing and laugh. If you’re wondering if you can buy the Sigrid Tacos...we should make that happen!”
From her VMA nomination for “MTV Push Artist of the Year,” winning the BBC Sound of 2018 to storming the stage at Panorama and Coachella this year, selling out shows in both NYC and LA, and performing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Sigrid’s unforgettably impassioned live performances have sparked mass appreciation and defiant, rebellious pop songs.
With her Spotify following tripling since the start of the year, and streaming numbers reaching almost 450M globally, Sigrid is undoubtedly set to continue her ascent with non-conformist and progressive attitudes to femininity with "Sucker Punch."

TWINS - 'Fade Away'
"The song talks about the fear of losing someone dear to you. For me the song is a musical version of the overflow of feelings after a breakup. The desperation you can feel of not having control of a situation anymore. You deal with a lot of ups and downs after something like that and this song came about from one of those days where things felt pretty sh***y," Twins said.
"The meaning is up for interpretation, but for me it's about loss and regret. The father in the video sort of is the meaning of 'fade away' and in the video we jump between his pretty complex mind and the reality that has created."
