Having recently announced a US tour and appearance at London’s Ja Ja Ja Festival, Norway’s Highasakite have revealed a the video for new single ‘Darth Vader’. The track is taken from their award-winning debut album ‘Silent Treatment’, released earlier this year through Propeller Records.
Directed by Joshua Ficklin, the video celebrates the recklessness of youth in a charmingly shot sequence of childish menace, adding a playful edge to the track’s rhythmic pulses and joyful chorus (see video above).
