Nordic indie stars Highasakite are back! Highasakite is the most selling indie band from Norway today - they even broke the record of longest lasting album on the official national album charts, and are now in week 99 with the previous album! First single “Someone Who’ll Get It” got over 26k plays on Soundcloud first release week. They've also toured the world, with amongst others Of Monsters and Men.
As one of seven detention camps within Guantanamo Bay, Camp Echo is a brooding proposition. It’s entrenched in historical discourse, but for Highasakite’s Ingrid Helene Håvik, ‘Camp Echo’ is more a state of mind. It forms the basis of Highasakite’s highly anticipated follow-up to ‘Silent Treatment’ –an effort applauded on both sides of the Atlantic and now claiming the record for longest consecutive run in Norwegian chart history, having spent 99 weeks in the Top 40.
