If you just can’t contain your excitement ahead of Highasakite‘s upcoming album release, then today’s your lucky day – because the band have just dropped a brand new single called ‘Golden Ticket’! 

‘Golden Ticket’ is the second track to appear from the band’s upcoming album Camp Echo – and offers up a brighter, lighter melody than the dark and brooding tones found on previous single ‘Someone Who’ll Get It’. It’s a pop-tinged anthem which will surely be a set highlight when the band perform at festivals such as Roskilde and Øya this summer, but dig a little deeper and the song’s subject points in a more melancholy direction than the synth-led melody would have you think…

“The song is very much about escapism, both escaping yourself and the world; just wanting to get high and get out, basically” explains lead vocalist Ingrid Helene Håvik of the track, offering up more enticing hints of what we can expect from the rest of the record.

Camp Echo is the second studio album to appear from the Norwegian outfit, who spend most of 2015 smashing records in their home country as their debut record Silent Treatment sat solidly within Norway’s top 40 album chart for a staggering 94 consecutive weeks! Will the new album do the same? We’ll have to wait and see!

Highasakite’s new album Camp Echo will be released on the 20th May through Propeller Recordings – so tune in to ‘Golden Ticket’ now for a taste of what’s in store!
