ZAAR er et soloprojekt af den aarhusianske loopartist Sara Flindt. Med hendes to bandkolleger, skaber ZAAR en majestætisk og eksperimenterende lyd, så man ikke skulle tro var muligt at skabe som trio.
ZAARs univers indeholder både aggressive beats og synthflader, mens den samtidig rører lytteren med smukke og skrøbelige intense øjeblikke.
De debuterede i 2017 med en dobbelt singlerelease af ’Last Song’ og ’Foolish Ways’, og sidste sommer indspillede ZAAR deres debut EP ’Lost My Sense of Humor’ i Norge, som forventes udgivet i 2020.
Bandet består, udover Sara, af Bjarke Amdrup (Kr4n) og Jonathan Ludvigsen (Athletic Progression).
