What’s this? The debut single from 20-year-old Norwegian artist Hilde Skaar. Or SKAAR, as she’ll be known as for the purposes of her pop career. This is her debut single ‘Higher Ground’.
What’s it like? A beat-heavy, mid-tempo ballad that rouses as it goes. Ideal film-soundtrack material. And as it happens, it accompanies the Norwegian film Battle, released in cinemas this Friday.
Written by? Hilde herself, along with Fanny Hultman and Madelene Eliasson. Produced by MadFun.
More from SKAAR? We actually have written about her before, despite this being her debut single. Two years ago, she featured on the TRXD banger ‘Wherever You Go‘.
You can find ‘Higher Ground’ on our Best New Pop playlist.
