“Armed with a genre-shifting, kaleidoscopic sound, and delivering a stage show that is truly unlike any other, Haiku Hands have spent the last few years turning nonbelievers into dedicated fans at every turn.”
– ROLLING STONE
“When Haiku Hands become one of the most hyped live acts on the planet, it should come as a shock to nobody”
“The Australian trio…bring a truly eclectic melting pot of styles to the table, all ending up in a brilliantly fun, intoxicating end product…”
Haiku Hands have launched their highly anticipated, self-titled debut album via Spinning Top Records (AU/NZ) and Mad Decent (USA). To mark the release, the dance-pop collective share the anthemic, bass-ridden new single Sunride.
Sunride explores trust, conflict and communication, in addition to forgiveness and acceptance of each other and our imperfections. “This song carries a message of hope, we imagine ourselves on a cloud, riding through a blue sky when we listen to this song,” says Haiku Hands of track.
Rebellious, experimental and wildly unconventional, ‘Haiku Hands’ was recorded in Melbourne with Joel Ma (Joelistics) and features emblematic collaborations with SOFI TUKKER, Mad Zach, Machine Drum, Mirac, Elgusto of Hermitude and Lewis CanCut. Featuring lead singles Fashion Model Art, Not About You, Manbitch and Onset, the 12-track LP probes themes including technology, relationships, the absurd and social commentary.
“This album is an opus of discovery,” muses Haiku Hands. “It maps the finding of our sound, our voices and what we wanted to say. These songs chart some of the very first sessions we ever did where we spent most of the time rolling around on the floor laughing, to the latest sessions where we were so tired and alive from touring and had a more developed sense of what we’re about.”
Producer Joel Ma adds, “Working with Haiku Hands in the studio is like releasing a flock of exotic birds in the room, ideas fly thick and fast and inevitably the songs leave a trail of tropical plumage and bangers in their wake.”
