Their dark pop has the potential to reach a really big international audience. In March the new album will be released worldwide.
The brand new album by Highasakite, Silent Treatment, has been embraced by critics as one of the first really great albums from 2014. The band are selling out large clubs, so the fans seem to agree. Highasakite debuted in 2012 with All That Floats Will Rain, and played Øya that year. Since then, their fan base has increased, and they are on their way to becoming one of the major acts in Norway this year. Their dark pop has the potential to reach a really big international audience. In March the new album will be released worldwide.
Highasakite was recently named NEW BAND OF THE DAY by The Guardian: – The music ranges from the subtly atmospheric to the bombastically rousing.
Highasakite started at the Music Conservatory in Trondheim. They quickly established themselves as one of the country’s most promising young bands. Now they are ready to take the next step. If you are not already a fan, it is a risk that you can become addicted to their songs after seeing and hearing in Tøyenparken in August.
