“Nakamarra” is undoubtedly one of our favorite tracks off of Australian band Hiatus Kaiyote’s debut project, Tawk Tomahawk. The song speaks about building bonds with our chosen family, the kind that remain strong even after long periods of physical separation. The group traveled 5000 kilometers back to the original location in Alice Springs where lead singer Nai Palm was initially inspired to write the song. Hiatus Kaiyote details their journey:

“We walked through red and yellow deserts, swam in freezing waterholes, slept in abandoned mine shafts, wrote off our hire van after hitting a kangaroo, camped under thousands of stars, salvaged eagle feathers, saw emus, dingos, ate camel burgers, made music and bonded all while making our very first film clip.”

Here’s to love. Enjoy the colors.
