Hana Lulu – Keepsake

 Hana Lu Lu

This might just be the coolest EP to come out of Winnipeg this year. Atom Dzaman, Kevin Desjarlais and Chris Aquin make up Hana Lulu. The band has been making a name for itself, recently landing coveted gigs such as opening for James Murphy and playing the Saturday night of RTMF this past summer. Their sound is synthy and unexpected, with modern, happy sounds that makes you want to dance. Desjarlais’ voice is seriously impressive and works perfectly with Hana Lulu’s synth-heavy sound. While it might be easy to get lost in their highly danceable tunes, the lyrics stand strong, always clever and worth paying attention to. While a synthy up and coming band may be accused of following in Royal Canoe’s footsteps, Hana Lulu is so much more than that.  If you’re going to spend money on an EP anytime soon, let it be this one.
