Hiatus Kaiyote


Emma Donovan & The Putbacks

Melbourne-based, worldwide-beloved, twice-Grammy-nominated Hiatus Kaiyote returns with their new album Mood Valiant and to celebrate the band are going on tour. 

Comprised of Nai Palm (guitar, vocals), Paul Bender (bass), Simon Mavin (keys), and Perrin Moss (drums), Hiatus Kaiyote broke internationally in 2012 with their first LP, Tawk Tomahawk, which was praised by simpatico musical travelers from Erykah Badu to Questlove to Prince, and embraced by DJs like the BBC’s Gilles Peterson, DJ Jazzy Jeff and Anthony Valadez (KCRW/Morning Becomes Eclectic). Their first R&B Grammy nomination, for their song “Nakamarra,” was followed by a second for “Breathing Underwater,” from their sophomore album, 2015’s Choose Your Weapon

From July onwards, audiences across the country will be amongst the first to experience Mood Valiant live. Playing at some of the most beloved venues in Melbourne including Forum Melbourne.

Returning today to officially launch Hiatus Kaiyote season, listen to Get Sun (feat. Arthur Verocai) and stay tuned for more coming soon.
