SKAAR Shares Stunning New Single ‘Say Something Now’
Say Something Now is a gorgeous introduction to SKAAR’s new project Waiting.
Norway’s rising star SKAAR has announced a new collection of songs titled Waiting, set for release on April 16th. Comprising of new acoustic recordings, Waiting touches upon the coming-of-age moments, offering a further glimpse of SKAAR’s unique and stirring songwriting.
The lead single Say Something Now is a bruising stripped-down ballad that finds SKAAR reflecting of a past breakup. With a touch of melancholy sweetness to the mellow sound, SKAAR softly paints the air with light acoustic brushes and alt-pop aesthetics. The gently plucked acoustic guitar and rousing piano lay the foundation for her heavenly vocals to shine through, creating an emotionally vulnerable song that feels very personal yet achingly relatable.
Speaking on the new single, SKAAR shares:
‘Say Something Now’ is a song I wrote about a very specific moment of a breakup. I needed to know if there was anything left to hold on to or if it was time to move on. I needed that other person to just be honest. I was desperate to know what was going on in his head.
On Waiting, she adds:
‘Waiting’ closes the musical chapter I’ve been working on for the last three years. It’s a prequel to the EP and shows a whole different side of me as an artist, but also a whole other part of the story I want to tell.
I was supposed to write a lot of music in the spring of 2020, but when the pandemic hit I just lost all of my creativity. In the autumn, I had sessions almost everyday and after many months of frustration I suddenly met a turning point and had this rush of inspiration. After nine amazing days, we completed the album. And I’m so proud of how it turned out!
