Though not yet a radio staple in the U.S., Norway’s Highasakite is huge in their home country of Norway, having won the Pop Group of the Year (2014) at Norway’s version of the Grammys. Named after a line in Elton John’s “Rocketman”, Highasakite’s sound has delved deeper and deeper into electronic music over the course of the band’s history, which started in 2011. Their most recent album, Camp Echo, was released in May and features “Someone Who’ll Get It,” a song which currently has been streamed more than 4.5 million times on Spotify!
The mood Highasakite lays down on Camp Echo suggests Friday night’s show with be rather chill, the music awash in synths, programmed drums and occasionally processed vocals though the running man beat in “Deep Sea Diver” is likely to get people moving (that is, if the band performs the song during their set).
