What’s this? The brand-new single and music video from Norwegian artist SKAAR – her fourth – ‘Five Times’.
What’s it like? A vigorously pulsating anthem that’s as cutting as it is empowering – “YOU KNOW WHAT YOU DID” should send shivers of fear through the body of every man that’s done a woman wrong.
What does SKAAR say? “This song is about how women have been treated unfairly within our society throughout history and to this day. It’s not about hating men, but about how stories and norms have made a culture that discriminates against women and teaches men to see them as objects. When we wrote ‘Five Times’, the lyrics were about a girlfriend of mine who had a boyfriend that cheated on her a lot. She found out, and he managed to make her forgive him and also make her feel guilty about the mistakes he had made. This song is an anthem to all the women out there that think men should own up to their own shit!”
Written by? SKAAR herself, along with Madelene Eliasson and Fanny Hultman, produced by MADFUN.
More from SKAAR? Earlier in the year she released the excellent ‘24‘.
