Part of our mission at Revive Music is to connect audiences and musicians alike from around the world together in a creative transmission of ideas, spheres of sound, moods, vibrations, mutations, history, and communication. As such, today we are grabbing our mic and telling everyone we can about the serious vibes our friends/counterparts in Melbourne—boutique artist management/PR/consultancy/event company Wondercore Island—are spreading across the world. You may know them as the team beyond Hiatus Kaiyote, but today you’re about to recognize the Melbourne scene at it’s finest.

After getting some rousing praise from fellow music provocateurs like The Roots and Erykah Badu, Hiatus Kaiyote have been able to show the U.S. wait Melbourne has known for some time. With their set at The Knitting Factory—their 2nd in Brooklyn and fourth in New York City overall—it’s arguable that the Big Apple is the place they’ve gotten the most love. They reciprocated those feelings to a sold out crowd at the eclectic Williamsburg venue.

The Worldwide Awards (backed by Gilles Peterson) voted Hiatus Kaiyote as the Break-Through Artist of the Year for 2012. The year saw the Australian band release their debut record entitled Tawk Tomahawk as well as perform around the world and expanding their audience.

Hiatus Kaiyote has been on everyone’s minds lately as the Australian band makes their way across the ocean and into our headphones. Everyone from Miguel Atwood-Ferguson to Erykah Badu have been singing their praises, but there is no voice we want to hear more than HK lead vocalist, Nai Palm. Thus it is with excitement and much fanfare that Revive Music is presenting the North American debut of Nai Palm Sunday 10/14/12 at Rockwood Music Hall.

Hiatus Kaiyote is different than most anything you have ever heard, that’s a definite. Combining the sensibilities of opera, jazz, nu-soul, turntablism, and infinite other worldly sounds, the band brings together a wealth of life experiences both musically and elsewhere. As we eagerly await a US performance, they continue cementing their sound in Australia. Check out below as we introduce you to Hiatus Kaiyote.
