Highasakite

After huge critical acclaim for 2014 album, Silent Treatment, Norwegian indie-rock band Highasakite are back with a third album, Camp Echo. MusicTech gains unique studio access to the recording via band members Trond Bersu and Kristoffer Lo and the album’s co-producer, Kåre Christoffer Vestrheim…
Despite bringing in more electronic gear for the new album, Camp Echo is still very much a Highasakite album

Highasakite – Ingrid Helene Håvik (vocals), Trond Bersu (drums), Øystein Skar (synths), Marte Eberson (synths) and Kristoffer Lo (guitar, percussion and flugabone) – have a unique sound that mixes traditional and technological instruments. It’s quickly led to them becoming one of the biggest names on the indie rock and pop scene. The band’s second album, Silent Treatment, spent no less than 40 weeks in their home charts and won them two Norwegian Grammies (Pop Group Of The Year and Composer Of The Year). They‘ve since spent a couple of years touring around the world headlining and supporting some huge names, including Of Monsters And Men and London Grammar.

MusicTech caught up with Trond and Kristoffer plus co-producer Kåre Christoffer Vestrheim as they put the finishing touches to their third album, Camp Echo.

MusicTech: When you go into the studio as a band to record, do you have a plan or philosophy?

Trond: I think individually, we are five people with strong musical voices, but when we mix that together, we end up with the sound of Highasakite. I´m inspired by new production methods and always try to challenge myself, and always move forward. For the new album, I programmed all of the drum parts in Ableton, and used some drum machines and synths. Mostly Elektron Machinedrum, Casio Rapman and samples in Ableton.
