Hiatus Kaiyote: Nakamarra

A friend of mine recently turned me on to Hiatus Kaiyote, and I’m glad she did. The Australian neo-soul quartet has a buttery sound that’s fronted by singer/guitarist Nai Palm and supported by the fresh grooves of bassist Paul Bender.

Here’s a great clip of the band playing through their song “Nakamarra” live on WNYC’s Soundcheck. I’ve played it a dozen times and I bet you will, too.
