Haiku Salut are an instrumental dream pop and electronica trio from the Derbyshire Dales. The group consists of multi-instrumentalists Gemma Barkerwood, Sophie Barkerwood, and Louise Croft.
Between them, Haiku Salut play accordion, piano, glockenspiel, trumpet, guitar, ukulele, ?drums, and melodica. Their music also features electronic elements, which they refer to as “loopery and laptopery”. Influenced by the evocative film soundtracks of Yann Tiersen and Benoît Charest, the genre-melting electronica of early Múm, and the impressionistic writing of Haruki Murakami.
As well as pushing musical boundaries, Haiku Salut have been exploring new ways to combine technology and artistic expression. In April 2013, the trio debuted their Lamp Show, in which they are accompanied by a stageful of vintage lamps which are programmed to flash, fade and flicker in time to the music.
