Time Magazine puts Highasakite atop their ’17 Bands to Watch’ SXW list.

From 11 to 15 March, Highasakite are set to play no less than five SXSW gigs. Time Magazine has put the band atop its hot-list of ’17 Bands to Watch’ at the Austin, TX festival.

Writes Time Magazine: ‘If you’ve never heard someone rock a zither before, be sure to check out Norwegian Grammy nominee Highasakite. The band was invited to tour with Bon Iver after Justin Vernon was blown away by their dreamy indie pop.’
