Norwegian electro-popper Sigrid Solbakk Raabe (otherwise simply known as Sigrid) has just been announced as the winner of the BBC Sound Poll 2018. You can catch her before mega-stardom possibly looms, at the relatively intimate Concorde 2, 12 March. The Sound Poll started in 2003 with the aim of showcasing the most exciting rising stars in music.
Previous winners include Adele, Sam Smith, Ellie Goulding, HAIM, Years & Years and Ray BLK just last year. The acts that appear are all hand-picked by a panel of music industry experts from around the world. The long list for 2018 also included Orange County, IAMDDB, Khalid, Pale Waves and Superorganism.
