Norway’s Highasakite return with lead single “Golden Ticket”, which will be released on April 8th. It’s the 2nd song, which is dropped from their upcoming album “Camp Echo”, due for release on May 20th. 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”.
“The song is very much about escapism, both escaping yourself and the world; just wanting to get high and get out, basically” – a surprising foundation, given the track’s uplifting and undeniable pop sensibilities.
