Editors’ Notes Haiku Hands are the kind of girls you want to be friends with. They’d know where all the good parties are—and just the right music to get them started. The all-singing, all-dancing, all-female electro-pop trio who recall acts as diverse as Beastie Boys, The Ting Tings, and 1960s girl groups, take no prisoners on their eponymous debut album. They bring energy, noise, and a plethora of internal rhyme schemes to tracks about empowerment, defiance, and just having a bloody good time. For this dozen-track collection, which takes on everything from Miami bass grooves to radio-friendly anthemic pop, the group—Melburnian Beatrice Lewis and Sydney sisters Claire and Mie Nakazawa—cowrote every song with Joel Ma (aka Joelistics), as well as working with featured artists such as Sofi Tukker (”Fashion Model Art”) and Mad Zach (the dancehall-inspired chant-along ”Onset”). Haiku Hands is laugh-out-loud funny in places, whether it’s the ridiculous boasts in house anthem “Manbitch” (“I manhandle your man handles/I down-sample your man rambles”) or the whole of the aforementioned “Fashion Model Art,” a ’90s house banger about trying to look cool at a party that ends with a frantic cry of “What do I do with my hands?!” As much fun in your own kitchen disco as it’d be in the club, Haiku Hands is the uplifting, carefree album that 2020 needs.
