Silent Treatment (Highasakite album). Silent Treatment is first full-length album, and second in total, released by Norwegian indie pop group Highasakite.
The debut full-length from Norwegian outfit Highasakite is a real mixed bag of genres that are anything but simple to categorize, with adventurous soundscapes laden with intricate pop melodies dominated by the wonderful voice of Ingrid Håvik. The songs build behind her bold and intriguing vocals; they weave between the textured instrumentation provided by the other four members, who bring percussion, synths, and guitars to the mix.
Highasakite – Silent Treatment. By James Killin, 12 February 2014, 09:30 GMT. Silent Treatment. 8. Release date: 10 February 2014. While their compatriots were dazzling the Sochi 2014 opening ceremony in silver flat caps and powder blue salopettes, Oslovian quintet Highasakite were playing at Tou Scene, a former Victorian brewery in Stavanger. Tou Scene is now a live music venue and artists’ residence and, situated a stone’s throw from the fjords of Norway’s Western coast, it may as well be the architectural embodiment of Silent Treatment.
Silent Treatment is first full-length album, and second in total, released by Norwegian indie pop group Highasakite.

Album · 2014 · 12 Songs. Having earned best new band honors from Pitchfork, NME, and Paste magazine, Norway’s Highasakite made immediate headway with their debut EP, 2013’s In and Out of Weeks, as well as with a series of live performances that made a believer out of Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon. Though the band have five capable members, it’s lead vocalist Ingrid Helene Havik who transforms the material from competent to otherworldly.
Silent Treatment is largely an album built upon big, ambient-textured plateaus - the absence of a more guitar driven sound allows the band to transition parts in a more serene fashion. The best example of this, ‘Science and Blood Tests’, is a jaw-dropping statement of the band’s ability, it’s ethereal chorus punching well above the band’s weight.
Includes FREE MP3 version of this album. Silent Treatment" is definitely one of the best albums of 2014 so far. The lyrics are top notch in every song and the same can be said for the music in mostly every song too. 1. "Lover, Where Do You Live?"
