The defining sounds of Highasakite
The Norwegian buzz band shares a personal Spotify playlist.
In Spotify Essentials, the Daily Dot curates custom playlists created by some of our favorite artists and writers. This week’s edition comes courtesy of critically acclaimed Norwegian indie pop band Highasakite.
I think this playlist somehow captures a little bit of every band member, things we have just discovered and things that we use as an inspiration to make music, drums, and moods.
Highasakite consists of five quite different musicians, but that ends up being a really good match when we´re together and working on new songs.
In this playlist there are artists and songs that we used as an inspiration for starting the band, such as Joy Division. There are also brand new releases like the brilliant song “Red Eyes” from the War on Drugs and one tune from MØ´s great debut album. Fever Ray is also one of our favorite artists at the moment. At least we´re always listening to her when we´re driving in the tour bus.
You can listen to Highasakite’s new album, Silent Treatment, on Spotify.
