I’m always on the hunt for new bands to listen to at work, so Highasakite was the perfect addition to my 9-5 playlist. The Norweigan indie pop band almost lets me forget I’m stuck in the office 40 hours a week, instead of enjoying the warm weather that finally decided to grace Toronto after what felt like 14 striaght months of winter. (Don’t worry Mother Nature… I’m not bitter) The band recently made the move to take on the North American market with the March release of their EP “In and Out of Weeks”. The group describes the album as “a tense, moody ballad full of long sustained guitar notes, vast washes of spacey keyboards and dense layers of skittering percussion”. Seriously, with a description like that, whats not to love?
