The winner of the BBC’s Sound of 2018 released the new visual on Norway’s National Day, and it takes inspiration from E.T’s classic bike-riding scene, and High School Musical 2, among other things.
“‘High Five’ is about the importance of being completely open and honest with each other,” said Sigrid of the track, speaking to i-D. “We used high fives as an image of superficial relations. I love the tune, and there was such a good team behind it! Emily Warren, Martin Sjølie, Odd Martin Skålnes and I”
“Sigrid and I talked a lot about the power of friendship,” adds director Ivana Bobic, who also shot Sigrid’s videos for ‘Strangers’ and ‘Raw’. “We love all the high school movies, and Spielberg films like E.T or Close Encounters that are in a magical world but also really they’re a metaphor for friendship.”
‘High Five’ follows on from Sigrid’s previous release ‘I Don’t Want To Know’.
