HIGHASAKITE Unveil Magical New Tune ‘5 Million Miles’
Moving up from the stoic torment of Camp Echo, Highasakite release forgiving 5 Million Miles.
Highasakite’s eminent vocalist Ingrid Helene Håvik’s characteristic vocal range does in many ways distinguish the sound of the Norwegian quintet. Ditching the sore tang that flourished on Highasakite’s latest Camp Echo, Håvik captures her raw vocals with a springing sense of hope. The simplistic backdrop of pulsing beats draws on influences from tropical house as well as melodious pop caricatures. It all feels a tad safe, and though it is a nice tune, it does not reach the other-worldly bombastic proportions that Highasakite master so exquisitely well.
The single is produced in collaboration with pop-production powerhouse STARGATE who’s worked with A-listers like Beyonce, Rihanna, Sia and P!nk.
