Fans of Hiatus Kaiyote quickly got to know all the tracks on Choose Your Weapon as soon as it came out. Now they have the opportunity to fall in love all over again with a new video the band released for “Breathing Underwater.” Composer/Front-woman Nai Palm recently discussed the track, and others, in an interview with Revive, saying “‘Breathing Underwater’ is something I’ve written since we’ve been on tour. People are familiar with our live shows because we’ve had to take advantage of the exposure so there’s bound to be live footage. Usually you record then you tour after you’ve dropped an album right? But we like to keep pretty interesting for our fans and for ourselves so we like to play songs that are pretty new for us and our fans. Sometimes those shows get captured. For example, there’s a video of me playing “Molasses” by myself that is up on YouTube. So it’s kind of crazy when we tour with the whole band and we see audience members sing-a-long to songs we haven’t released!”

 

Choose Your Weapon
The new video is a beautiful production directed by Breeder, the award-winning Australian based motion design studio best known for working on the opening titles to HBO’s True Detective. The captivating shots capture the subtle beauty in water and sand and bring to life Palm’s lyrics about, among other things, the Jericho Rose, a unique desert plant that can survive for years without water.
