It’s all set for a magic evening when fantastic Highasakite are quests in The Archbishop’s Courtyard this summer during Olav's Festival.
After a break from tours in order to be able to concentrate on making new music, one of Norway’s most popular live acts is ready to set off on 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 stayed in first place for several months.
These new singles display a development in the Highasakite sound, and at the same have a more organic form than their previous album Camp Echo (2016) and the Stargate produced side-track 5 Million Miles (2017). This is more and more reminiscent of the big open sound Highasakite worked on in the highly acclaimed album Silent Treatment (2014), which topped the VG list for more than a hundred weeks. At the same time, they have developed immensely and have culivate their own ideas to the full.
During recent years, Highasakite has performed on some the very biggest stages and festivals. 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 international festivals such as Glastonbury, Latitude (UK), Hurricane (DE), Roskilde (DK) and Field Day (AUS), as we 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 wonderful new spectacular 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 has 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.
Fairly recently, it was announced that the Ålesund girl had signed a contract with the very respected booking agency United Talent for Europa, Australia and Asia.
