Why does every great Norwegian pop tune sound like it could soundtrack the credits of The Last Unicorn? Where does one harvest such rocketing synths, syrupy crashes, strings and woodwinds that sway and fall like dandelions in the wind? Surely the answers lie somewhere in the liner notes of Highasakite's “Indian Summer,” a quintessential heartbreak gem that’ll knock the air from your lungs, note by note. But until the release is pressed on August 20 via Riot Factory, you, like us, will know nothing of why and only of what is. Which is not bad, considering you, like us, get to splash in this mpfree as long as you have ears.
