The West coast of Norway isn’t very well known for its pop stars, but this is on the verge of changing. Sigrid Raabe, or better known simply as Sigrid, is taking the world by storm with her beautifully written “Don’t Kill My Vibe’. A tale of empowerment.

Being left to believe you don’t belong can be devastating. Having your ideas, art, thoughts, dreams shot down by those self-important, and ultimately insecure, people ‘in power’ can also throw one-off course. Sigrid has seemingly taken such an experience and turned it into a strong statement of empowerment.

You shut me down, you like the control
You speak to me like I’m a child
Try to hold it down, I know the answer
I can’t shake it off and you feel threatened by me

This insight, coupled with inner strength, is a strong message, not just for young women in the music business, but to a worldwide society that is being bombarded with trolls and soul-suckers. Don’t let your vibe, your creativity, and/or your self-worth be tainted. Hold your head up, and rock.

You think you’re so important to me, don’t you?
But I wanted you to know that you don’t belong here
You think you’re so important to me, don’t you?
Don’t kill my vibe

The future of tangible pop music is here. Along with Birdy, Lorde, Lada Gaga…Sigrid has a voice, and we will be hearing her messages loud and clear for some time to come.

Sometimes it’s really weird being an artist, and I deal with that best by being myself. And if I can see myself in everything we do: if I can recognise my face, I recognise the outfits, I recognise the artwork, the songs… I don’t like to do a lot with my voice in recordings and stuff, keep it as pure as possible. Keep it raw, keep it honest. I don’t see a reason for why not. Why should I give control away to someone else?” – Sigrid (The Guardian)
