Aussie trio Haiku Hands have dropped their highly-anticipated, self-titled debut album via Mad Decent today. The 12-track LP unpeels the complex layers of technology, relationships, social issues, and identities that we juggle with daily while delivering a genre-fluid record. From singsong reflections to breakneck vocal bombs, the trio offers a new kind of sound palette for their listeners that is reinvigorating. Recorded in Melbourne with Joel Ma (Joelistics), the LP features collaborations with SOFI TUKKER, Mad Zach, Machine Drum, Mirac, Elgusto of Hermitude and Lewis CanCut. Enjoy:
“This album is an opus of discovery,” shared 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.”
Joel Ma addes, “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.”
Keep the gals under your radar for more bangers.
