Cajsa Siik: Higher (Video-Single, 2014)

Higher is the second single taken out of her upcoming new album Contra. Having had her first single Relentless Delight pushed and supported by the likes of NME, Clash, and Indie Shuffle, the latest single had to be a worthy follow-up. Luckily Higher, already supported by BBC6, Amazing Radio, Under The Radar, Earmilk etc etc, is a great example of bringing the essence of art-pop to its full notion and restlessness. Cajsa Siik knows exactly how to remain sonically insatiable whilst still giving her listeners a solid foothold. Her sensual vocals are a clear contrast to the enigmatic and textured arrangements. They fit perfectly with the minimalistic orchestration that supports her every word from the very first bar. The overall production is contained yet exciting, with a steady rhythm pulsating in the background resembling somewhat Gotye’s Somebody That I Used To Know. The hand-tapping beats and Cajsa Siik’s captivating lyrics both leave the listener charmed and incapable of resisting the repeat button.
