Haiku Hands’ Slay With “Nunchucka”

Australian alt-dance trio Haiku Hands (Claire Nakazawa, Beatrice Lewis, and Mie Nakazawa) have released a super-upbeat, positive-vibe video for their dance single “Nunchucka” (Spinning Top Records) before some US tour dates this June.

The band wrote this track in Bali and staged the video as perhaps its opposite: a dusky warehouse throwdown reminiscent of your favorite kung fu fight. Calling it “a super charged high energy self affirmation anthem for anyone who wants to wipe off the patriarchal stain of self-loathing,” Haiku Hands recommends listening “before you go out, when you’re out, and when you get home. Enjoy your life.”

Haiku Hands tour their “singular, unruly, and outright fun sound” throughout Australia all May, returning to North America June 9 to perform at Capital City Pride Fest in Des Moines and New York’s Governor’s Ball June 11. More dates are below and on the band’s website.

  • Friday, June 9 – Capital City Pride Fest, Des Moines IA

  • Saturday, June 10 – Gov Ball After Dark, Queens NY

  • Sunday, June 11 – Governor’s Ball, Queens NY

  • Wednesday, June 14 – El Cid, Los Angeles CA

  • Friday, June 23 – Cactus Club, Milwaukee WI

  • Saturday, June 24 – Logan Square Arts Festival, Chicago IL

  • Sunday, June 25 – Sleeping Village, Chicago IL
