Highasakite has released a new video for the new single “5 Million Miles”. The video was filmed entirely by an in-car camera, through the windshield. The track is off HIGHASAKITE’S current release Camp Echo, now out on Propeller Records.
The music video follows Ingrid Helene Håvik on a journey through various different locations in Norway. Taking the viewer through rough and industrial tunnels and harbour scenes, shots from the beautiful Norwegian countryside, and glossy, heavily lighted indoor studio settings.
Speaking on the making of the video, Ingrid said: “The shoot took about two days. Two very long days – we weren’t finished until 4am on the last day. We were shooting in and around Oslo, and the tunnel shots were about an hour out of the city in a place called Gran. I haven’t worked with a production team that large before. There were so many people involved, and it was quite scary at first. I had a really great stylist thats called Afaf Ali. I work with her as often as I can. I remember that I worked with a crow once in a previous video, but that horse was amazing. It was so huge, but still very calm and kind.”
To get the dynamic framing and camera movement, the car the video was filmed with had to be lifted up in the air by heavy crane systems, pushed around on dolly wheels and dragged on the back of a low loader among other things – resulting in a music video you never would guess is shot through the windshield of a car.
‘5 Million Miles’ highlights the signature vocal style of Ingrid Helene Håvik, this time in collaboration with pop-production from STARGATE (Beyonce, Rihanna, Sia, P!nk) and mixed by MILES WALKER.
The single follows Highasakite’s recent performance at the Nobel Peace Prize, where Håvik caught the keen eye of presenter and US talk show host Conan O’Brien, who promptly booked a special guest performance on his show on May 2nd – going down very well with US audiences.
