With lyrics and emotions always playing the quintessential part in her music, Hildur Höglind tells a story. Fascinated with the darkness within us and our desperate attempts to understand and be understood, she tries to put words on what makes us human.
Below are some quotes about Hildur and her music.
“Ibland hör man en låt som man blir omedelbart tagen av, där text, musik och röst samspelar i ren perfektion. Inledningsspåret ”On Monsiur’s Departure”, en 500 år gammal tonsatt dikt på Hildur Höglinds nya femspårs-EP Poems, är en sådan låt.
Det är i sina stunder orimligt vackert.” – Vesna Prekopic, HYMN March 2018
“Myself and Hildur completed a UK tour in the summer of 2015. From the planning stage, to the performance stage, Hildur was ambitious, hard working, enthusiastic and passionate about her work. Her stage presence is effortlessly captivating, and her music, unbelievably, is even more so. Despite her age, her songwriting abilities are beyond her years and could challenge even the greatest of writers.” – Sam Lyon, Musician, www.samlyonmusic.com, September 2016
“The music that [Hildur] has released over the years speaks volumes not only to her talent but; also the hard work she is willing to ensconce herself in through the medium of music. The soft timber of her voice houses a cemented lyrical backbone…” – Rania M M Watts, Poet, Cement Covered Ink Quills, August 2016
“Singing with confidence and grace, [Hildur] is Sweden’s answer to Damien Rice. It was an absolute honour to be hearing such an established artist performing comfortably in our humble home of a youth group.” – Northwich Guardian, February 2015
“[Hildur is] a strong personality with the courage to try out new ideas; Gilded vocal chords paired with a golden touch on the guitar.” – Musik Direkt Jury, May 2014
