Scando-themed club night Ja Ja Ja celebrates three years in existence with late November line-up that includes Highasakite.


Successful London Scando-themed club night Ja Ja Ja celebrates its third anniversary with a strong line-up for its 29th of November event at the Lexington with Danish post-RnB starlet MØ, Finnish electronica duo Sin Cos Tan and celebrated Norwegian outfit HighasaKite.

Highasakite, comprised of members Ingrid Helene Håvik, Trond Bersu and Øystein Skar have created a four-song dream-pop escape that recalls the music of Lykke Li, Neon Indian and Of Monsters and Men. With their infectious hooks, ethereal synths and confident vocals, the trio has positioned themselves as a band to watch.’

Irresistible soundscapes full of tasty hooks and mysterious stories, with musicians from some of Norway’s top-tier bands. Highasakite undoubtedly represents the pinnacle of Norway’s burgeoning indie scene.

Keyboards, zither, pounding drums and the occasional noise guitar together with Ingrid Helene's distinctive voice makes a delicious blend of exciting indie pop inspired by artists such as Lykke Li and the movie Where The Wild Things Are.

Highasakite's debut album "All That Floats Will Rain" has received strong reviews throughout the Norwegian press, some even calling it album of the year (Dagbladet) going as far as stating: "No song on this album is redundant, it's all brilliantly brought to life. This, ladies and gentlemen, is pop music!"

This summer has seen Highasakite playing many of Norway’s key festivals, including Øya and Hove, in support of their debut album 'All That Floats Will Rain', which saw its release in February through Norwegian indie label Riot Factory.
