Subculture Live returns to London's iconic 100 Club in 2019 with Haiku Hands headlining a night of forward-looking and genre-defying new music.

Haiku Hands
Described by The NME as a cross between Charlie XCX and The Beastie Boys, Haiku Hands are an Australian trio who manage to include elements of pop, house, hip-hop, rave and visual performance arts into their records and superbly entertaining live sets. While different viewers will take away different things from Haiku Hands, one thing that all accounts seem to agree on is the sheer amount of energy that the band exude through their music. Haiku Hands have honed their output with the help of some of the most creative musical collaborators Australia has to offer, becoming unofficial ambassadors for the country's current thriving scene of youth counter-culture. 

"...it’s almost incomprehensible to witness a live show from a new act that can be this electrifying, memorable and bloody fun." - NME

Suzi Wu
Born in Blackpool, raised in London, with a healthy disregard for ideas established by the preceding generation, Suzi Wu's debut EP, 'Teenage Witch' garnered high profile attention with its genre-blurring self-taught DIY urban-pop. Suzi Wu recently followed up her debut, signing to Def Jam for the even more ambitious and notably more electronic 'Error 404' EP. Initial comparisons to other London accented musical upsetters included punk greats such as Ian Drury and The Slits, but Suzi Wu has more recently been likened to futuristic pop artists as diverse as Grimes, M.I.A. and King Krule, straddling both worlds effortlessly.

"...busy and unpredictable, just like the tough topics she’s tackling over the four tracks. Suzi’s rap-inflected flows bleed into her booming baritone as electronics glitch and pry below the surface of its instrumentals." - DIY 

BABii
Another artist looking to the future, BABii combines her dreamy childlike aesthetic and sweet vocals with layered industrial synths and deep bass to create her own unique world of future-pop. With similar musical DNA to artists such as FKA Twigs but with her own very distinct ethos, BABii has collaborated with rising Brainfeeder electronic artist/producer Iglooghost and her debut album 'HiiDE' was co-recorded with legendary dub and post-punk producer Adrian Sherwood.

"...a sumptuously textured slice of electro-pop... Cute cover art, too." - The Line Of Best Fit


The live sets will be expertly interwoven with DJ sets from influential and new music DJs:
