“intoxicating blend of delicate electronic textures and collision of curious instruments”
Haiku Salut are an instrumental trio from the Derbyshire Dales who describe themselves as a ‘Baroque-Pop-Folktronic-Neo-Classical-Something-Or-Other’.
Influenced by the evocative film soundtracks of Yann Tiersen and Benoît Charest, the genre-melting electronica of Ametsub and early Múm, and the impressionistic writing of Haruki Murakami, the band’s debut album Tricolore came out last year, to critical acclaim. The album was awarded four stars by The Guardian, Uncut, Drowned In Sound, Artrocker, Rock’N’Reel and many more, and songs from the record were played on BBC 6 Music by Jarvis Cocker, Tom Ravenscroft and Gideon Coe. After the release of Tricolore, the trio of Gemma, Louise and Sophie toured the UK and France, and won the Green Man Rising competition.
