Sigrid

Sigrid: the Norwegian pop star has never sounded fresher

This time we hear wonderful things from Sigrid, Frankie Davies, Dusty Stray, Micah P. Hinson, Larkin Poe and Morgan Evans


SIGRID
SUCKER PUNCH
Island Records

Sigrid’s ability to combine killer hooks with inventive melodies and production continues apace. The Norwegian pop star has never sounded fresher than when Sucker Punch’s verses quite literally melt into its bombastic chorus. DH


FRANKIE DAVIES
HIGH ON LOVE
Self-release

The latest single from Davies’ debut album is an infectious fusion of pop and country that challenges any misconception of what country music is; it’s the song that will convert any country music sceptic into a full-blown fan. Her vocals will draw you into a place where you’ll never want to leave. DC


DUSTY STRAY
YOU COULDN’T WAIT TO SEE ME CRY
Great Waters

Jonathan Brown, aka Dusty Stray, precedes his fifth album with this eerie electronic ballad. Like stumbling across a disconsolate folk singer in an abandoned bar from the near future; it’s best listened to while suffering from heartache at 3 a.m. DGH


MICAH P. HINSON AND THE MUSICIANS OF THE APOCALYPSE
THE SLEEP OF THE DAMNED
Full Time Hobby

With a backing track ringing out like a demonic version of Phil Spector’s ‘wall of sound’, Michah P. Hinson continues his descent into the abyss on a new track which is as unsettling as it is enjoyable. DH


MORGAN EVANS
DAY DRUNK
Warner Bros.

Morgan Evans is one of the most exciting country artists on the scene right now and his latest release Day Drunk is starting to make major waves in the UK several months after its release. It’s a fun, infectious feel-good track that makes you yearn for the summer. Evans’ vocals and songwriting talents are a welcome addition to the scene and the Australian is a huge star in the making.

LARKIN POE
BLEACH BLONDE BOTTLE BLUES
Proper Music

Sisters Rebecca and Megan Lovell return with a rhythmic and punchy new single which suggests that their sound will be tougher than ever on new album Venom & Faith – it’s old-fashioned blues with an injection of modern energy. DH


Words: Duncan Haskell, Laura Klonowski, Dave Chrzanowski, Daniel G. Haskell
