Haiku Hands - "Cool for You"

Australian alt-dance trio Haiku Hands are the perfect band if you went through a club/electronica phase in the 90's. Their latest single, "Cool for You," is going to remind you of the prime of artists like The Prodigy and The Chemical Brothers. If you played this for me and told me it was an unreleased song from the Wipeout XL soundtrack, I would completely believe you. It's a high energy and fun track that is going to bring back memories from twenty-five years ago for a lot of us. As someone who doesn't get into a lot of electronic music of today, "Cool for You" is the rare modern dance song I can get behind.

Bea Lewis says of her band's new single:

“This song is about feeling yourself, being at a party and enjoying being yourself. Being with your crew and feeling everybody, it’s the antithesis of capitalism that you need to be something else, that you need another product to feel good, that you need anything. It's a statement that you’re already good. In fact you’re already awesome and mad and lit and you should be singing it from the rooftop and celebrating yourself and backing yourself and feeling yourself. It still gives me goosebumps when I listen to it even though I’ve heard it a million times. It’s liftoff baby!!!!"
