Hadouken!




Although the Klaxons get credit for 'inventing' the 'new rave' scene, pioneers of the genre (which may or may not exist, depending on who you ask) are Hadouken. Mixing grimey ravey indie electro rock, their new single is here at last. In the making-of video for their new (as of yet unreleased) video for latest single Liquid Lives, the guitarist explains the song is
"based on the whole allegory of emotions based around the drug that is alcohol."
Someone off camera adds, (I have no idea who, sorry)
"It's not a drug ... it's a drink."
A friend of mine ripped this off their Myspace, but as far as I know it's the final mix that will be available for download soon. If you've heard the old demo from Keep Hope Inside in January and liked it, have a listen to this; everything slightly crap about the old one has been resolved. I'm seeing Hadouken! at the ULU in june with Does This Offend You, Yeah? supporting. It's going to be fun. Have a look at their Myspace, there's usually at least one mp3 available for download. Coming soon will be the long-awaited Hadouken! remix of something by Forward Russia, and there has been rumours of an Enter Shikari remix. Now that would be interesting.
