"a delicious slice of pure electro-pop gold." - WONDERLAND MAGAZINE

...pop heaven. Håvik's vocals are passionate, raw and loving (a million miles from the troubled figure of Camp Echo), supported by sharp and smart beats, wooden block percussion and whooshes of bright synths. It brims with positivity, and wherever Highasakite is heading it's never likely to be anything else than a step in the right direction with Håvik at the helm." - THE LINE OF BEST FIT

Highasakite unveil stunning new video for
'5 Million Miles'
--

25 miles, 500 miles, 1000 miles – the pop world owes much to these daring proclamations of linear love, but Norway's Highasakite embarked on uncharted territory on new single '5 Million Miles’ - and today comes a stunning new video accompaninent for the powerful new single. The fascinating part about the video, is that it was filmed entirely by an in-car camera, through the windshield.

The music video follows Ingrid Helene Håvik on a journey through various different locations in Norway. Taking the viewer through rough and industrial tunnels and harbour scenes, shots from the beautiful Norwegian countryside, and glossy, heavily lighted indoor studio settings.

Speaking on the making of the video, Ingrid said: “The shoot took about two days. Two very long days - we weren’t finished until 4am on the last day. We were shooting in and around Oslo, and the tunnel shots were about an hour out of the city in a place called Gran. I haven't worked with a production team that large before. There were so many people involved, and it was quite scary at first. I had a really great stylist thats called Afaf Ali. I work with her as often as I can. I remember that I worked with a crow once in a previous video, but that horse was amazing. It was so huge, but still very calm and kind.”

To get the exciting and dynamic framing and camera movement, the car the video was filmed with had to be lifted up in the air by heavy crane systems, pushed around on dolly wheels and dragged on the back of a low loader among other things – resulting in a music video you never would guess is shot through the windshield of a car.

‘5 Million Miles’ highlights the soaring signature vocal of Ingrid Helene Håvik, this time in collaboration with pop-production powerhouse STARGATE (Beyonce, Rihanna, Sia, P!nk) and mixed by Grammy-Award winner and repeat Billboard offender MILES WALKER. It navigates meteoric apocalypse with effortless pop sheen, signalling Highasakite’s first new music since #1 charting, Norwegian Grammy-winning sophomore album of last year, ‘Camp Echo’ – out now via Propeller Recordings.

The single follows Highasakite’s recent performance at the Nobel Peace Prize, where Håvik caught the keen eye of presenter and US talk show host Conan O’Brien, who promptly booked a special guest performance on his show on May 2nd - going down very well with US audiences.

Highasakite has gone from strength-to-strength since releasing ‘Camp Echo’– racking up millions of streams along the way, alongside a busy live schedule including main stage headlines at Norway's five biggest festivals; Glastonbury, Latitude (UK), Hurricane (DE), Roskilde (DK) and Field Day (AUS); and sold out venues spanning the UK, US and Australia. The album is internationally acclaimed, inciting rave reviews from the likes of Vogue, MOJO, The Guardian, The Independent, The FADER, Q Magazine and The Line of Best Fit. Not to mention, repeat playlisting at triple j (AUS) and #1 Radio Chart in Norway.

Highasakite’s debut LP of 2014 ‘Silent Treatment' still holds the record for longest consecutive run in Norwegian chart history, having spent more than two years in the Top 40.

‘5 Million Miles’ is supported by countless live dates and high-profile appointments throughout 2017, in addition to a SOLD OUT 9,000 capacity arena show at Oslo Spektrum last month.
