It’s all set for a magic evening when fantastic Highasakite are guests in The Archbishop’s Courtyard this summer.
After a break from tours so as to concentrate on making new music, one of Norway’s most popular live acts is ready for the road again. With their new singles Out of Order and Elastic State of Mind, which were played on the radio throughout the spring and summer of 2018, Highasakite is back for full. Elastic State of Mind reached the top of the official Norwegian radio list in week 35 and occupied first place for several months.
These new singles mark a significant development in the Highasakite sound, and have at the same time a more organic form than their previous album Camp Echo (2016) and the Stargate produced side-track 5 Million Miles (2017). It is more and more reminiscent of the big open sound that Highasakite worked on in their hit album Silent Treatment (2014), which topped the VG list for more than a hundred weeks. At the same time, they have developed incredibly and have culivated their own ideas to the full.
During the last few years, Highasakite has performed on some of the very biggest stages and at the biggest festivals in the country. The Camp Echo tour lasted for six months and included sell-out concerts in Oslo Spektrum, headline spots at festivals such as Øya, Bergenfest, UKA in Trondheim and appearances at international festivals such as Glastonbury, Latitude (UK), Hurricane (DE), Roskilde (DK) and Field Day (AUS), as well as sell-outs in the UK, the US and Australia.
Highasakite has become famous for their fantastic big scale scene productions and stage presence and look forward to visiting the biggest cities in Norway during the spring and to meeting their fans again with new stuff and with a spectacular new live performance.
Twenty-two-year-old Amanda Tenfjord from Ålesund was a good bet for who to look out for in 2018. Not only has she given great concerts and taken part in by:Larm, Trondheim Calling and Klubbøya, she also received the Role Model Prize (2017) and has been massively streamed on her own. The girl from Ålesund has also caught the eye of the international music industry. In the words of NME himself: “There’s a promising power inside her which is definitely worth keeping an eye on in the year ahead”.
So far Amanda Tenfjord has released two singles on Propeller Recordings – First Impression and No Thanks, both listed on national radio and played frequently in Norway. Her previous singles were also played on Best New Pop on BBC Radio 1, as well as by Huw Stephens, Annie Mac and Phil Taggart.
Just recently too, it was announced that the Ålesund girl has signed up with the well-known booking agency United Talent for Europa, Australia and Asia.
