Haiku Salut
Bleak and Beautiful (All Things) How Does It Feel To Be Loved?

Article written by Kev W - Jun 2, 2015

51ADMXnNI6L._SS280_1_.jpg
On their 2013 debut album 'Tricolore', Haiku Salut served up a platter of mixed influences, experimental noodlings and quirky pop songs. The first offering from forthcoming follow-up 'Etch And Etch Deep' shows a definite progression, but towards quite what it's a struggle to describe. In just under four-minutes we're taken for a ride through a variety of ideas and musical pastures, and although it's not exactly a rollercoaster, it's an interesting and fun trip.

Completely instrumental, 'Bleak and Beautiful (All Things)' sets off like a folktronica drone, and this loop remains while more colour is added. Electronic glitches and bloops tick in and out, what could almost be a French accordian throws up a playful riff of sorts, and then we reach what could perhaps be considered a fantasical fairground ride of instruments that have no notion of time and space. Who needs a formula when we have wonderful experiments like this being created?
