Derbyshire trio Haiku Salut hit us with this amazing debut ‘Tricolore’. There is a little favouritism going on here as I’m a Midlands lad myself but seriously, no messing, this is a truly stunning debut. Consisting of three girls, Gemma, Louise and Sophie, they create the most fantastical mix of instrumental folktronica you’re ever likely to hear, a gorgeous blend of acoustic interplay with a host of other instruments; accordions, piano, trumpets and laptop twiddling all dance around playfully with each other. ‘Sounds Like There’s A Pacman Crunching Away At Your Heart’ is a lot like the more accessible moments of Jim O’Rourke circa ‘Bad Timing’ and ‘Leaf Stricken’ is like a glitch/folk collision of Autechre meets Mum!
The single ‘Los Elefantes’ has been championed by BBC6 Music and is great baroque-pop piece, it’s hard to believe that this is a debut album when usually music this good takes years of crafting. Haiku Salut though have really mastered this with ‘Tricolore’, each track is a little piece of heaven, experimental but never too pompous or pretentious, elements of Yann Tiersen collide with the more rhythmical Leaf artists like Clue To Kalo. These girls have really captured my heart today, this is an album of wonder and euphoria and a magnificent debut!
