‘High as a Concept’ is a joyous alt-pop track from the Southern shores of Norway.
Hailing from Norway, Are You Having Fun Yet are an alt-pop band that excellently combines the sounds of 1980’s new wave, with 2000’s indie pop. To put that in some kind of context, imagine a super-group consisting of members of New Order and MGMT, and that pretty much encapsulates the sound of this group.
This specific song is incredibly laid back, and there’s a dreamy quality to both the instrumentals and the vocals. The changes in the melodies and keys peppered throughout the song are a nice touch that keeps you on your toes, as well as the layered vocals during the chorus. It all combines to create a wonderfully enjoyable alt-pop tracks that leaves wanting more from them.
This is the first single from the bands debut album, that it set to be released at some point during the spring. Based on their other singles ‘Are you having fun yet?’ and ‘Turbo’, it’ll definitely be one to keep an eye out for.
