Hiatus Kaiyote’s new electro-psych jazz LP debuted 22nd on the 2015 Australian Charts. The quartet is fronted by guitarist/lead singer Nai Palm with Paul Bender on bass, Perrin Moss on drums, and Simon Mavin on keyboard. Choose Your Weapon is an extremely diverse album made up of numerous genres including slow jazz, R&B, funk, and electronica all textured with dream-like chill wave.
Within the context of a playlist, any one of a dozen songs here could bridge ’50s bop to ’60s MPB, or ’70s art rock to ’80s boogie, or ’90s neo-soul to 2000s dubstep. Equally remarkable is that none of it seems devised. It’s like these musicians simply radiate the stuff.” – All Music (4.5 / 5-star review)
With just two greatly admired album releases, the band have caught the attention of celebrated artists such as Prince and Pharrell. Check out future tour dates in the link below.
