Alien Weaponry – Haputatu

Today’s track of the day comes from Alien Weaponry with their single Haputatu!

We can’t get enough of Alien Weaponry here at AltCorner! And are absolutely loving recent single Haputatu!

Drummer Henry de Jong said: “The story of Hatupatu is one Lewis and I grew up with – our father was the first person to tell us as children. Having a family connection with it only made creating a song more intriguing for us. Traditionally, Māori legends were passed down through families by re-telling them, not by having them written down in books. It only makes sense for us to be re-telling this story as our tūpuna (ancestors) did for generations. We cannot wait to share with the rest of the world.”
