about

Hajk’s debut album is being released by Jansen Plateproduksjon soon, and after the great success with debut single "Magazine" (Premiere on «Noisey» (US), «Indieshuffle» (UK), «Dagens Nyheter» (Sve), they follow up with the perfect pop gem: "Best Friend".

"Best Friend" is the first song the band wrote together and it’s a simple and in-your-face pop song. They wanted to create a song that both sounded modern and tight, but also with a little 80's vibe, referring to their childhood music. Somehow they've managed very well. This is a song about close friends who maybe expects too much of each other, and get to the point where it finally falls apart.

Considering that they’re such a fresh band, Hajk have been surprisingly quick to adjust them-selves. Not long after they entered the door to their rehearsal space, they played at Slottsfjellfesti-valen, Øyafestivalen and by:Larm. They were listed on radio before they left the stage at those festivals, and now they’re here – with a brand-new record contract and a brace of songs that any band would be jealous of.

Hajk are fronted by Preben Sælid Andersen and Sigrid Aase, who share the vocals, while Johan Nord (drums), Knut Olav Buverud Sandvik (bass) og Einar Næss Haugeth (keys) completes the backbone of the band. Musically, Hajk are situated in a modern pop/rock landscape, with an em-phasis on very strong melodies. The band are influenced by artists like Dirty Projec-tors, Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Amason, but still they stand firmly on their own feet, with an original sound that also challenges the genre they belong to.

lyrics

In a day or two, I will be gone
I will disappear, and I’m not the only one
Liar, lying to my face
Liar, I will be gone

Aa, Aa, Aa

Cross your heart and hope to die
I can’t take another lie
And I don’t know if I can ever trust you again
Whatever happened, whatever happened
Time and time again you told me wait and see
I won´t buy the stuff you’re selling me
Oh no I, I don’t know if I can ever trust you again
Whatever happened to my best friend?

Liar, you’re still having fun
And I feel like I just wanna run
We can talk about what’s been said and done
Liar, you’re still having fun

Why won´t you talk about it
Why won´t you talk about it
Why won´t you talk about it
Why won´t you talk about it

Won’t you cross your heart and hope to die
I can’t take another lie
And I don’t know if I can ever trust you again
Whatever happened, whatever happened
Time and time again you told me wait and see
I won´t buy the stuff you’re selling me
Oh no I, I don’t know if I can ever trust you again
Whatever happened to my best friend?

You’re such a liar, you’re such a liar
You’re such a liar, you’re such a liar

Aah
