Are You Having Fun Yet – “High as a Concept”


Are You Having Fun Yet are a talented alt-pop trio hailing from the Southern shores of Norway. Following some nice press in their native Norway, the act seems poised to emerge even further with their new single “High as a Concept”. Released today, the track showcases a purely infectious sound that meshes ’80s new-wave with ’00s indie-pop. Stabs of ethereal synths complement a hook-y vocal melody, with further twinkles and a mounting bass line crafting a bridge that eases into the brilliant hook at 01:10. The smattering of guitars at 02:38 adds an excellent, rock-forward direction as well. “High as a Concept” is a joy to listen to, a great showing from Are You Having Fun Yet.
