Haiku Hands sign with Diplo’s Mad Decent label
The Aussie trio have spent 2019 turning heads overseas, particularly in the US with a series of showcases at SXSW followed by support slots across the states. Now they’ve announced a deal with Mad Decent for the release of their debut album, due out in 2020.
Their rise has been swift since emerging in 2018. Following their set at UK’s Great Escape festival, NME called the band “Australia’s most electrifying pop prospect”.

Haiku Hands have also dropped their latest single ‘Onset’, with production from Mad Zach.
“Onset is the kind of track that you can listen to while walking down the street and feel like you own it,” said Claire from the band. “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.”
Haiku Hands kick off their Australian tour this weekend in Perth, before making their way across the country throughout November and December including a set at The Day Disco at ICF.
