Hajk have released a brand new single entitled 'Breathe', the third and final single from the upcoming album 'Drama' that is out on February 15th on Jansen Records. The track is a soaring, emotional R&B-tinged song with an instantly infectious melody guided by Sigrid Aase’s powerful vocals that enthrall throughout.
Behind the sheen though, the band's Preben Sælid Andersen has explained that 'Breathe' is actually, "about the ability to believe in yourself and the ones close to you. It’s about trying to hold on to something, but deep down you know it's already too late. Breathing is also something we have talked about a lot during the making of this album, and it now serves as a theme throughout the record, in the lyrics and with actual breathing sounds hidden all over. Being able to take a step back and take a deep breath can be the only right thing to do sometimes."
Hajk have shared a brand new single entitled 'Keep Telling Myself' which is fizzy pop gorgeousness!
The band's Preben Sælid Andersen has said that 'Keep Telling Myself' is, "actually a pretty dark song about trying to convince yourself that love still exists – not just between two people, but in general. This is also a sonic leap for us, containing a variety of sounds that we really enjoyed exploring."
'Keep Telling Myself' is the latest single to be released from newly announced album 'Drama', the first track 'Dancing Like This' can be heard below:
'Drama' – of the interpersonal kind – that’s what Hajk have turned their focus to in 2018. The band burst onto the scene with their self-titled debut album last year, garnering support around the world as well as making a name for themselves in their home country of Norway. Now, the highly anticipated follow-up 'Drama' has been announced for February 2019 – a record that both pulls at the heartstrings and urges you to dance away your sorrows. Lead single and first taste of what is to come arrives in the form of the bubblegum-flavoured new cut, 'Dancing Like This'. It's a lyrically melancholy and wide-eyed love song, with an addictive melody that looks to sugarcoat your tears.
'Drama' is due for release on February 1st via Jansen Records. First single from it 'Dancing Like This', is OUT NOW, listen here.
Hajk have unveiled their brand new video for the swirling poignant and beautiful 'Untouch' out now via Jansen.
Hajk have said: "This song is about experiencing sudden changes in a relationship - from trusting and depending on each other, to being all alone. Sometimes it will feel so overwhelming that you wish you’d never met in the first place. Or at least you’re wishing that you were able to foresee what was going to happen. In the video, there’s two different atmospheres to underline the contrast - remembering the warmth you felt just the other day, which now is long gone"
In short UNTOUCH is a masterpeice
Hajk have announced their brand new track 'Untouch' which you can listen to HERE before the official release tomorrow via Jansen.

'Untouch' is a delight to fans of their debut self-titled album that was released in the Spring of 2017 to critical acclaim.
Hajk are fronted by Preben Sælid Andersen and Sigrid Aase, who share the vocals, while Johan Nord (drums), Knut Olav Buverud Sandvik (bass) and Einar Næss Haugeth (keys) are the band’s backbone.
The band have emerged with an off-beat, honest, sound that clicks into place and somehow combines the smooth and the sharp into a perfectly complete electro-pop feel that casts a mischievous glance at influences such as Unknown Mortal Orchestra, The Dirty Projectors and ANIMA!.
