Haiku Hands 2019

Onset acts as the vibrant single introducing the group to a larger audience ahead of their debut album planned for 2020. Haiku Hands, made up of Beatrice Lewis, Claire Nakazawa and Mie Nakazawa, exploded onto the scene in 2018 via Spinning Top. 2019 has seen the group making waves in the US, opening for the likes of CHAI, Tame Impala, Sofi Tukker and CupcaKke.

Speaking of the new single, Claire explains:

Onset is the kind of track that you can listen to while walking down the street and feel like you own it. To me it’s a power track, about owning your power, sharing and enjoying it. Classic rap braggadocios with a conscious tip. Feeling the good vibes and not sweating the small stuff. The beat references classic genres. Mad Zach’s musical knowledge shines through as he incorporates sounds and elements from old school 80’s & 90’s hip hop, rave and electro and combines them with contemporary, new school electronic production. The result being a fresh, nostalgic, head banging track that you’ve never heard before. Onset is colourful, wild and rude. Get into it.

Teamed with Mad Zach on its excellent production, Onset is an amazing showcase of what makes Haiku Hands so infectious. The single boasts a phenomenal beat and punchy lyrical flows. With their debut album imminent, we can’t wait to see what Haiku Hands has in store and hope to see them in concert soon.
