We asked Norwegian sensation Sigrid to pick her top tunes from the Introducing Uploader. She's put together a playlist of 11 tracks from some of the most exciting emerging artists in the UK.

All of these artists uploaded music to BBC Music Introducing. Check out the list below and listen to the playlist in full.

"I actually wrote a music column for a Norwegian paper, and I found all the music through SoundCloud and the Norwegian equivalent of Introducing. I had to give it up because I started to spend all my time on my own music, so it’s an honour to be kind of back at it for BBC Music Introducing. Thanks for letting me do this ❤️. Here’s some great stuff I found in random order (I’m taking notes from all of them)."

Xenoula - Caramello

Who?

Originally raised in South Africa before moving to the UK at age 16, Wales-based Xenoula, aka Romy Xeno makes sultry, earthy-sounding electronic pop.

"This is so smooth. I can see this as the soundtrack of a 70’s action movie."

Greta Isaac - Tied

Who?

Also hailing from Wales, Greta Isaac draws upon a background of folk music to make glorious off-kilter electro-pop with melodic vocals.

What Sigrid says:

"Can’t wait to scream this chorus from the audience at all the festivals next summer. Holy s***, what a tune😭"
