Norway's Highasakite - Official Video for "Golden Ticket" from Camp Echo Sparkles (and current Tour Dates)

In the video for Golden Ticket from Highasakite's latest album "Camp Echo" as directed by Øystein Moe, Alexander Somma and Line Klungseth Johansen features Ingrid Helene Håvik framed in a lush atmosphere of fluorescent blue specks, gold paint and laser lights but it isn't the sparkle that pulls you into the imagery but instead it is Håvik's penetrating stare and artistic allure. And such is the case with the song itself, whether framed in lush indie pop or in a more stripped down performance (also see HAAK's NPR Tiny Desk session below) Ingrid's emotional vocal artistry is at Highasakite's core possessing this quality that captivates.  

Highasakite's  previous record, 2014’s‘Silent Treatment’  recently celebrated a massive two-year milestone in the Norwegian Top 40 Chart, and their latest album, ‘Camp Echo’ has hit over 10 million streams on Spotify despite it only being released in May.

HAAK had a hefty tour schedule this summer, including festival billings at The Great EscapeLatitude Festival, Roskilde Festival andØyafestivalen. Additionally, fresh from making their Glastonbury Festival debut, Highasakite will perform at the 23rd annual Nobel Peace Prize Concert on December 11 to honor this year’s Nobel Laureate (awarded December 10) and help spread the message of hope, courage and global peace. Amazing.

Go HERE for current Tour Dates.
