Almost one month on from the single’s unveiling, eclectic collective Haiku Hands have shared the clip for their SOFI TUKKER-featuring track, “Fashion Model Art”.
The latest taste from their long-awaited self-titled album, the group explained that the song’s chorus had been created on a train ride returning home from the Sydney Biennale, and showcases the boisterous way in which creativity strikes them.
“This song celebrates the fashion model art character within ourselves,” they explained. “We revel in the hilarious, tense, fun, ridiculous and utmost seriousness of these moments. SOFI TUKKER jumped on this song after we toured with them for a month in the US.”
Now, Haiku Hands have released the official video clip for the single which, in true fashion, is as full of the same sass and satire that is prevalent throughout all of the group’s work, whilst managing to serve as something of a visual representation of a modern-day renaissance painting at times.
Filmed in Sydney, the clip was directed by the acclaimed Jasmin Tarasin, who explains that the video is a perfect showcase of just who Haiku Hands are at the most basic level.
“Haiku Hands are in fact a wonderful collision of fashion, model and art in the very best way,” Tarasin explains. “It was so inspiring to be able to play and create with these women in collaboration with our combined creative community.
“I enjoyed the process so much and feel that the fun and beauty we found is seen on screen. We had the very best time.”
“Fashion Model Art” joins an array of slick tracks set to arrive on the group’s debut album, which arrives on September 10th.
“The record explores an attitude of empowerment, humour and positivity whilst also delving into darker themes and expressions,” Haiku Hands explained in a statement upon the album’s announcement.
“We aimed to be original in our creative choices, we were influenced by multiple genres and artists but were aiming to create something that sounded new and different.”
Haiku Hands’ self-titled debut album is officially released on September 10th through Spinning Top Records and Mad Decent.
