SKAAR Drops Out Of My Hands

Norwegian Grammy-nominated and A-listed artist Hilder Skaar – AKA SKAAR – has shared brand new song Out Of My Hands. After supporting fellow Norwegian Sigrid at Olso’s massive 10,000-capacity Spektrum arena, before hitting the UK for two BBC Introducing shows as well as playing new music festivals Waves and Tempo, the sky is clearly the limit for this rising star.

Out Of My Hands is SKAAR’s latest exposed outpouring of emotions, but this time her melancholic undercurrent is overwhelmed by a liberating desire to escape the issues that she faces. In a surge of glistening pop melodies and galloping beats, her assured vocals teleport fans to a brighter place as she sings, “Let my hair down, feel the sun on my face, close my eyes and listen to the waves, ‘cos it’s out of my hands.”

Of the new song SKAAR says: “Out Of My Hands is about trying not to control yourself or how you’re supposed to react to things. 2021 for me was a pretty difficult year emotionally, and my biggest struggle was that I couldn’t let myself stay in the sadness I was feeling. This song really reminded me of the beauty in being sad and how letting my body decide for me could really be a relief. It was also nice to write about just taking it one step at a time, and not to push for life to be perfect right away. When I listen to it now I’m reminded to take a deep breath, close my eyes and try to focus on the small things. I hope it can do the same for other people listening too.”

SKAAR was quickly established as Norway’s brightest new talent with early singles Higher Ground, Turn Of The Tide and 24. The immediacy of her hits was matched by the greater artistic vision she presented with the debut EP The Other Side of Waiting. What should have been a dream come true, however, instead became a crisis of confidence. Eventually, SKAAR looked inwards and followed her instinct. The acoustic Waiting project showed a different side to her, which she followed by facing her emotions head-on, which in turn gives her new music a revitalised pop edge and a fresh ability to connect.

Expect big things from this rising star, we’re told that we can expect her to play more shows in the UK later this year!
