Haiku Hands announces Debut Dublin show at The Grand Social

HAIKU HANDS are a new collective that have exploded into the music scene with a new

single. The group has been around in the worlds of visual art and live performance, but now

their frantic energy has been put into a banging track. Claire Nakazawa and Beatrice Lewis

are the key forces behind Haiku Hands, with experiences working as vocalists for Urthboy,

Mark Pritchard, Lapalux and Hermitude between them.

From the start this tune is solid, with a compressed bassline repeating under the rapping.

The confident delivery of tongue in cheek rhymes is chanted by two strong voices,

shamelessly doing it for themselves. As the track gains traction, more and more elements

are added, a 4 to the floor beat and contrasting hats, and a synth pad mirroring the bass. All

together these pieces create a feel good earworm that's bound to get dance floors pumping.

The dance rap style delivery is reminiscent of Le Tigre, with real messages dispersed among

seemingly non-sensical lyrics. Packed full of fun rhymes and catchy phrases, Haiku Hands

touch on themes of self empowerment and living for the day. The two voices rapping

together make this track a fun romp and challenges the listener to learn the words and

deliver them with just as much power.

This debut track from Haiku Hands is just the beginning, as more juicy tracks are in the

pipeline made with the help of some...

Haiku hands will play The Grand Social on Wednesday 7 th August with tickets from €15 incl

booking fee on sale Friday 17 th May at 10am from Ticketmaster

Strictly over 18’s
