Hiatus Kaiyote

Recommended Posts

Came across these lot a couple months ago, only just returned to check em out. Her vocals are gorgeous and their sound is nice.


Hiatus Kaiyote are future soul. Based in Melbourne, the four-piece fuses neo-soul, hip-hop and electronic beats along with flavours of Latin, jazz and opera, all presented with a cinematic sheen.

The band formed in mid-2011, and ever since, they have been racking up accolades, including album of the week on Gilles
Peterson’s show on BBC Music 6, and props from luminaries such as Eyrkah Badu, Questlove, Shafiq Husayn, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, James Poyser, Pharaoh Monch and Jean Grae.


Their debut release, Tawk Tomahawk, peaked in the Top 10 played Albums on KCRW in June and July, 2012. The band has shared bills with Brainfeeder Records artists, Taylor McFerrin, Lapalux and oOoOO, Warp legends Chris Clark and Harmonic 313, sound genius Robin Fox. 


They are playing at Meridith Music Festival (Dec 2012) Peats Ridge Festival (Dec 2012) Perth International Arts Festival (Feb 2013) and SXSW (USA March 2013) as well as appeared at Woodford Folk Festival (2011/12) and The Melbourne International Jazz Festival (2012).
