In 2020, Australian electronic dance collective Haiku Hands (Beatrice Lewis, Claire Nakazawa and Mie Nakazawa) released their critically acclaimed self-titled debut album via Mad Decent. With their unrivaled live show, the band quickly amassed legions of fans. Haiku Hands have toured North America on opening dates for Sofi Tukker, Cuppcakke, Chai, Tame Impala and more.
Never one to sit still in the studio, they followed up Haiku Hands with a deluxe edition as well as a limited edition classic black vinyl on Spinning Top Records/Mad Decent. The 16-track deluxe edition included new singles ‘Shoot The Shot’ and ‘Conclusions’ as well as alternate versions of ‘Onset’ and ‘Fashion Model Art’ which joined favorite albums such as ‘Manbitch’ and ‘Not About You”. “
Rebellious, experimental and wildly unconventional, Haiku Hands was recorded primarily in Melbourne with Joel Ma (Joelistics) and features iconic collaborations with SOFI TUKKER, Mad Zach, Machine Drum, Mirac, Elgusto of Hermitude and Lewis CanCut. Featuring lead singles “Not About You”, “Manbitch” and “Onset”, the 12-track LP explores themes including technology, relationships, the absurd and social commentary.
“The record explores an attitude of empowerment, humor and positivity while delving into darker themes and expressions. We aim to be original in our creative choices, we have been influenced by multiple genres and artists, but we let’s aim to create something that sounds new and different.”, thinks Haiku Hands of the album.
Based in Melbourne and Sydney, the core of Haiku Hands is made up of Beatrice Lewis, Claire Nakazawa and Mie Nakazawa. Together they organize, perform and work as an artist collective, engaging and exploring social norms with their lyrical and visual content. Their influences range from hip-hop to pop, electronic to dance, and more.
