EDITORS’ NOTES

This Australian sextet’s second album is a whirlwind of nu-funk, neo-soul, and electronic. The band exhibits the chops of a jazz fusion ensemble, augmenting tracks with small yet delightful details, from the classic hip-hop piano break that closes “Swamp Thing” to the stop-start beats of “Breathing Underwater” that sound like gulps of air. Throughout, lead singer and rhythm guitarist Nai Palm’s elastic vocals explore the nuances of yearning and desire, as she yelps, coos, riffs, and lures us in.

Really?

There are certain songs I skip through on albums, I have never skipped through their music. That's unreal! I can listen to 3 artists @ any time no matter the mood. Nas, Stevie Wonder and Hiatus Kaiyote

Real music was on hiatus

If the tracks on Fire Single: By Fire, Laputa and Molasses (my favorite) are any indication this is poised to be another great album. Can’t wait for May 5th for album to drop and see them live at Grammercy Theatre !

Taps into the Soul

Hiatus Kaiyote penetrates farther outward and further inward than any music I've ever heard. Revelation. Connectivity. Symbiosis. Universal.
