Australian alt-dance trio Haiku Hands (Claire Nakazawa, Beatrice Lewis, and Mie Nakazawa) announce their upcoming sophomore album, Pleasure Beast, due December 1st via Spinning Top Records.
To celebrate their new LP, the trio return with a thumping pop anthem, ‘Feel So Good,’ a Gorillaz + Fatboy Slim-inspired cut of euphoric indie sleaze with a propulsive break beat that will make you want to dance, as well as boasting an all-star production team consisting of Dan Farber (Lizzo, Tkay Maidza, G-Flip) and Josh Fountain (BENEE, Ladyhawke).
Speaking about the single, Claire Nakazawa says, “I recorded my vocals for ‘Feels So Good’ two nights before I gave birth, so the chorus ‘let it out it feels so good it makes you want to cry’ took on a whole new meaning. The music is inspired by Fatboy Slim’s anthemic dance vibe and Gorillaz.”
Beatrice Lewis adds, “’Feels So Good’ is a song about speaking your truth into a world that would often much prefer you to stay quiet, polite, in line and obedient. It can be speaking loud political truths or quiet needs and wants to the people closest to you. This song is a dedication to those moments in your life when you can be brave enough to find your voice and let it out.”
