New single

‘Revolution’

Out now!

Merging the universal sound of dance music with the structure of a rock band together with exquisite attention to detail around their aesthetics and artwork, Highly Sedated is a unique concept that promises to take electronic music forward to incredible new levels.
Signed to Steve Angello’s SIZE Records, the band’s new single, ‘revolution’, is now available.

Revolution

Late 2017 we felt a need for a change.
We were boxed in by routines, our environment and most of all; our own minds.
So we rented an old, wooden theatre in the deep woods of the Swedish north.
Our goal was to get back to the roots of our music making.
Our goal was to find our common creative force and tap in to it like we knew we had to do in order to continue as a band.
And in our search for this abstract (but at the same time concrete) feeling, three new songs were born.

‘Revolution’ was the first one out.
We took it back to our roots: elements of 90’s British trip-hop was mixed with acoustic instruments and powerful synths from the future.
We wanted to give the listener the same feeling that we got from listening to bands like Massive Attack and Portishead.
The feeling of bombastic, yet beautifully intricate, change.

All the instruments, vocals and videos were recorded during this process.
But we still sat on the song for a while, knowing that it hadn’t reached it’s full potential yet.
So we called up our long-time friend Thomas Rusiak (legendary Swedish producer, artist and record label owner).
Together with him we finally found the structure and the soul of the song.
And the way he works with drums is nothing short of world class, this is a widely known fact.

The idea of ’Revolution’ was spawned in our constant quest to evolve.
But we realised that in order to evolve we also need to reflect on the past, but never let that past hold us back.
Like the song says; “No need to worry, my love. You’re so much more than the mistakes you’ve made”.

Vive la Révolution!
