Indie Spotlight: Hiatus Kaiyote

Posted in News on February 3, 2015

The three male band members of Hiatus Kaiyote got their start when, coincidentally, they came to live in the same house. Soon joining forces with female singer Nai Palm, a local fire dancer, their first concert was at Bohemian Masquerade Ball, amid a circus backdrop of sword swallowers, baton twirlers and other performers, the perfect setting for the birth of their eccentric sound. Tawk Tomahawk, their debut album, featured “Nakamarra,” their GRAMMY-nominated track, which garnered its title from a reference to the ruby-red landscape where Nai Palm grew up in Australia. The four-piece Melbourne-based group is now gearing up for the March release of their highly-anticipated sophomore album, Choose Your Weapon, a solidification of their eclectic polyphonic poetry crafted as a result of the numerous concerts they played in support of their debut. Hiatus Kaiyote will soon be on the road again, going on a world tour beginning in Australia and New Zealand before hitting the northern hemisphere for dates in North America and Europe.
