Highasakite return with a stirringly dark single ‘Someone Who’ll Get It’ – the first track to be lifted from their highly anticipated follow up album, due to be released later this year. With guitars that warp and percussion that ricochets like the gunshots that pepper the chorus, it’s a beautifully eerie addition to their exisiting catalogue.
“The gunshots make more sense if you hear the new album as a whole,” explains vocalist Ingrid Helene Håvik. “The theme of the album is war and terrorism. Not the war at home, like ‘Silent Treatment’, but what is going on in the world right now.”
“It’s not a political album in that sense that I want people to side with specific party or mindset, but it has been central in my life,” Håvik says. “There are not many love songs on the album, because I haven’t been in that state of mind for a long time. Global warming and war have been my main concern.”
‘Someone Who’ll Get It’ is out Friday the 29th via Caroline Australia.
