The Norwegian indie-pop trio just released a new single, “Someone Who’ll Get It,” from their forthcoming sophomore album (title & date tba) and here ya go…

Highasakit​e: Silent Treatment

Norwegian indie-pop trio Highasakite‘s debut full-length album, Silent Treatment, is strange, beautiful and anything but predictable.

With the lyric “Lover, where do you live? In the sky?”, the album glides opens on a melodic, wistful breeze.

The thunderous percussion of “Since Last Wednesday” and “Leaving No Traces” make for a sudden, drastic shift in sound.

Other fave tracks are “I, The Hand Grenade” and “Darth Vader,” though I find it curious and amusing that Highasakite singer-songwriter Ingrid Håvik refers to herself as a “terrorist,” “parasite,” “Philistine,” “killer bee” and “Darth Vader” in the lyrical course of just two songs.

“Iran” is the stand out track with dazzling drama that would make Florence + the Machine, Bat For Lashes and Lykke Li proud.

Highasakite: New Videos & Mp3s

I must add my voice to Highasakite’s growing international chorus of admirers. I’ve been seeing their name pop up all over the place since their smash performance at Øya Festival a few months ago, but as usual I was repelled by the hype. It wasn’t until their new video, “My Soldier,” recently premiered on a trusted source – the newly resurrected Wears The Trousers – that I bothered to pay them any mind. The Norwegian indie-pop trio is definitely a band to watch. Their music is soft and melodic, but has a dramatic edge. The closest comparison I can think of is of a Beach House and Mynabirds collaboration. You can watch their “My Soldier” and “Indian Summer” videos and download several mp3s at Soundcloud.
