All the way from Oslo, Norway, and featured as one of our must-see underground acts of September, Highasakite performed this past Saturday at The Echo in support of their new album Camp Echo. Kicking off their performance with their brooding deep cut “My Name Is Liar,” they unforutanaly hit a speed bump with some technical difficulties. As fans waited patiently to hear the band perform at their best, Highasakite quickly got things straight and came back strong with “Hiroshima.” Full of fiery synths and dark beats, Highasakite electrified fans from start-to-finsih with their pulsating synth pop. Front-woman Ingrid Helene Håvik worked the stage with passion in her every word, belting out powerful lyrics while her band mates kept the vibes high with their illustrious sounds.
Opening up for Highasakite at The Echo was NK Riot and his eccentric live synthesizing, followed by disco-pop outfit Iconique. Both acts gave unique performances and primed the dance floor nicely for Highasakite. Without a doubt, the evening was a night for elect pop lovers. Check out the photos below.
