The trio are also in the midst of arranging a full UK tour and have confirmed the following dates so far with more to follow:
Jan 30 - Spanky Van Dykes, Nottingham,
March 9 – Union Chapel, London,
March 23 – The Firebug, Leicester,
April 13 – Deda, Derby
Haiku Salut, a trio from the Derbyshire Dales who describe themselves as a “Baroque-Pop-Folktronic-Neo-Classical-Something-Or-Other”, release their debut album, “Tricolore”, on Monday March 11.
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, “Tricolore” is a startlingly ambitious debut: hypnotic, atmospheric, informed by a love of repetition and a desire to unpick that repetition from the inside.
Haiku Salut release an album track entitled “Los Elefantes” as a free download on January 7. “Tricolore” follows on March 11, released on vinyl and CD by How Does It Feel To Be Loved? The band play the Lexington on January 10, and the Union Chapel on March 9, with further UK dates to be announced.
