Highasakite Share New Single, “Golden Ticket”

Highasakite have shared a new single, “Golden Ticket“, taken from their forthcoming album Camp Echo, out May 20th via Propeller Recordings. Pre-order it here.

The track opens with “God, if you’re still watching” – a premise lifted from Gunvor Hofmo’s post-World War II poem, ‘Det er ingen hverdag mer’ [translation: there’s no more every day], or as vocalist Ingrid Helene Håvik describes it: “Norway’s funeral blues”.

It’s a very famous verse, and was used a lot around the time of the Norwegian terrorist attacks [Oslo and Utøya, 2011],” she explains. “The song is very much about escapism, both escaping yourself and the world; just wanting to get high and get out, basically”.
