Skaar (NO)

The Norwegian six-piece SKAAR invites to a powerful and transcendental journey in several shades of rock. This towering wall of melancholic noise started to come together when the classical voice of Karla Lesley Jaeger invited fellow musicians to join her project. In her words, this developed into something “magical and mystical”. SKAAR recorded their debut album in Glasgow with Tony Doogan (Mogwai, Belle & Sebastian). Moving towards alternative pop rock, the new songs promise to be intensively catchy and and beautifully mesmerising. The singles "Manic Moonlight" and "MIO" were released in 2018, while the album "Feed Me To The Stars" will be released 15th February 2019. SKAAR continues to win over yet more hearts and minds around the world with their mind-altering live shows, and is ready to hit the road again for their album release tour in March/April 2019. NME (UK) "Who: Mad Norwegian rockers. Why you’re going to love them: Anthemic riffs and haunting vocals – the Nordic band’s material sounds like the more feral B-sides of ‘OK Computer’-era Radiohead." Ihartpr (UK) "As the bandmates leave the stage, the supernatural atmosphere lifts and you suddenly feel as if you stepped back into a much more boring reality, which is a testament to the magic SKAAR create onstage." The Gig Slut (UK) "This was an exhilarating set, with the explosive talent of vocalist Karla Lesley Jaeger. My mind was boggled. I was entranced, bewitched, enthralled."
