No, they aren’t Japanese. Not Spanish either. The members of Haiku Salut, Louise, Sophie, and Gemma, hail from Derbyshire, England, and will release an album’s worth of baroque-pop-folktronic (their words, not mine) on 16 May. Check out the first single off the disc, the beautiful instrumental “Los Elephantes,” below. The track begins with a beautifully composed piano piece, before an accordion gets thrown in. The songs takes an even wilder turn about halfway through with the addition of some subtle electronic effects, before tribal drums bring the whole thing full circle.
