Wow. Hiatus Kaiyote is that ish. Their debut release Tawk Tomahawk dropped just over a week ago and it is mind bendingly good.
Claiming the vast umbrella of “future soul,” the group does not get comfortable with any one familiar style – with soul and some serious attitude as their cornerstone, the sound ranges from dirty glitch to cinematic parlour jazz to folk to rock to electronic and on. The vocalist sounds sort of like Corrine Bailey Rae on acid a la an essence of Karma Stewart – in the best possible way.
Listen to this now and make your day that more amazing. Holler at Melbourne, y’all.
