Australian future-soul quartet Hiatus Kaiyote will make their Seattle debut at Neumos on Sunday, May 17. They are touring behind their new album Choose Your Weapon.
The Melbourne band received a 2013 Grammy nomination for their remix of “Nakamarra,” featuring Q-Tip. Their fans include Prince, Erykah Badu, Andreya Triana, and Questlove. They draw inspiration from hip-hop, soul, West-African music, jazz, electronic music, and experimental sound design and production.
Check out their live performance of “The World It Softly Lulls” at the Okayplayer 2015 SXSW showcase here. Then have a listen to new songs “Breathing Underwater” or “Shaolin Monk Motherfunk,” and drop into the world of Hiatus Kaiyote. Also performing with them at Neumos will be Chimurenga Renaissance, Maiah Manser, and J-Justice.
