Formed around the core of singer, composer and poetess Ingrid [Helene Håvik] with the talented keyboardist and composer Marte Eberson, the Norwegian indie-rockers HIGHASAKITE rose to prominence in their home state in 2012 and have won many awards and plaudits since, as Pop Group of the Year, winning the coveted Bendiksen Award and gaining a valuable slot touring with Icelandic band Of Monsters and Men.
We met the band at last year’s Great Escape Festival.
Now they’ve collaborated with pop-production team STARGATE (fellow Norwegians Tor Erik Hermansen and Mikkel Storleer Eriksen who have previously worked with Beyonce, Rihanna, Sia and P!nk) and Atlanta-based Grammy award-winning engineer MILES WALKER to bring us a new single ‘5 Million Miles’ released via Propeller Recordings.
We had a listen:
Between a sextillion papyrus & linen beats a pearly lacquered voice shines golden and supreme before floating gently into the separating circle between eternal heaven and this mortal coil…
For fans of SIA…
‘5 Million Miles by Highasakite‘ is out now via Propeller Recordings.
