HaKU’s image is one of a particular shade of white (白 or ‘haku’) that cannot be dyed in any other colour. Also infused in the band’s name is the Japanese word for one note / one beat (拍 or ‘haku’) as well as the act of exhaling (吐く or ‘haku’) – to sing as if exhaling.
Creating music without relying on computers or synthesizers of any kind, HaKU is an electronic rock band that relies purely on human power to bring about its music – even in live performances. HaKU makes its presence felt in emotion-filled performances, combining a heavy-hitting sound with extraordinary vocals, reflecting the tense atmosphere that is the band’s worldview.
In the meantime, HaKU has released “wonderland (international edition)” in Asian countries from Universal Singapore in June. In July, they did a one-man live show in Malaysia which turned out to be a great success. They were also invited to famous AIM Chinese Music Awards which is very unusual for a Japanese artists.
