Most of the people who sold out Neumos Saturday night were there for London Grammar, and the rising English trip-hop trio did not disappoint. But it was a forceful performance by Highasakite, a little-known outfit from Norway peddling in big, layered anthems that was the surprise of the night.

Highasakite, fronted by the laser-voiced Ingrid Helene Håvik, has been on tour with London Grammar for the past two weeks testing out material from their debut full-length album, “The Silent Treatment,” due out April 8. Perhaps because Saturday was the final night of the tour for them, the band seemed to be in an unstoppable groove.
