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, going on to give a magical, coming-of-age performance on the Mountain Stage at the Green Man Festival. Writing about the band after the final of the Green Man Rising contest, MOJO and Clash were full of praise for the band. ‘They mesmerized the crowd into silence with their intoxicating blend of delicate electronic textures and collision of curious instruments’, noted MOJO, while Clash said: ‘Haiku Salut’s elegant weaving of minimalist electro tones around warm, somewhat folk-like arrangements – continental of feel, but very British of build – possesses that impossible-to-define X factor.’
The trio recently brought their spellbinding lamp show, which features 20 or so vintage lamps which are programmed to flash, flicker and fade in time to the music, to London for the first time, and are planning further lamp shows for 2014. They also toured the UK, as guests of Lau.
