hmv's Next Big Thing... #198 Haiku Hands
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you Aussie electro oddballs Haiku Hands...
Who Are They?
Haiku Hands are made up of Sydney and Melbourne natives Claire Nakazawa, Mie Nakazawa and Beatrice Lewis. A going concern for the last couple of years, they've attracted plenty of attention with a series of acclaimed singles and are now on their first headline tour of Europe.
What Do They Sound Like?
Take the bubblegum pop of Charli XCX, the brash production of Major Lazer and the eccentric edges of mid-90s Bjork and you've got Haiku Hands.
Why Should I Be Excited?
Because they make quirky and interesting electropop, but with big ol' choruses.
Can I Hear Something?
