Highasakite Returns to Chicago on 9/10 | New Single + Announced for Nobel Peace Prize Concert

Fresh from Glastonbury, Latitude, and a headline spot on Norway’s renowned Øya Festival, HIGHASAKITE has announced it’s new single “Samurai Swords” – taken from sophomore album Camp Echo, out now via Propeller Recordings. The new single is the third from their critically acclaimed new album that has earned raves from the likes of Vogue, The Guardian, The FADER, MOJO, Interview, Glamour and Q Magazine.

It proves a synthillating addition to Highasakite’s booming arsenal, tackling heartbreak with aplomb and the soaring signature vocal of frontwoman Ingrid Helene Håvik. Stream “Samurai Swords” here:  soundcloud.com/propellerrecordings/highasakite-samurai-swords
