Derbyshire based trio Haiku Salut conquered our ears with their sweet and quirky melodies and arrangements, crafted mostly using accordions, pianos, glockenspiels and ukuleles. Made up of Gemma and Sophie Barkerwood and Louise Croft, the band's two albums, Tricolore and Etch and Etch Deep, display their inventiveness and opens a window onto their unique and magical musical world, part folk, part classical and tinged with electronic influences. So we're thrilled to bits to start September with a marvellous mix of tracks picked by the band!
At the end of last year, we heard the staggering ‘Relapse’, taken from Human Pyramids‘ debut three-track EP Demo. The collective led by Paul Russell have just unveiled a video for the track, made by iEditStuff. Here it is.
Human Pyramids’ debut full-length album is expected later this summer via Oxide Tones, we’ll keep an eye out for it.
Human Pyramids, the brainchild project of London based Scottish multi-instrumentalist Paul Russell, have recently formed and offered their first taste in the form of a three-track demo.
Self-described as ‘joyous post-rock’, Human Pyramids craft beautiful orchestrated songs, filled with rich textures and melodies, that leave us craving for more.
Listen below to ‘Tall Tales’ and ‘Relapse’, and head over to their bandcamp to stream or download the demo.
