New Sydney-based dance / hip-hop collective ‘Haiku Hands’ recently revealed their party starting debut slice ‘Not About You’.
Commanding immediate attention, ‘Not About You’ hits hard with its infectious compressed bass line melody, synth pads and beats; unapologetically thumping along from start-to-finish. The vocals follow shortly after with undeniable Aussie swagger and charm, also refusing to reduce intensity with alluring energy and angst.
Taking cues from the likes of M.I.A., Die Antwoord and Le Tigre, the group still manage to deliver a sound that is instinctively them - an impressive feat for any artist on debut.
Although it’s their maiden track, it appears the girls are quite versed across various creative and performance based capacities. They’ve been involved in collaborative works with El Gusto (Hermitude) and Joelistics, amongst many other impressive projects and feats.
'Not About You' is one of the most exciting tracks we’ve heard from an Australian artist this year and we can’t wait to hear more.
