Event Details

Aussie future-soul visionaries Hiatus Kaiyote are excited to be playing an intimate and very special one-off show to celebrate the launch of Perth's newest hub for live music, arts and culture, Freo.Social.

Hiatus Kaiyote have fast become one of the most sampled bands in the world. They were featuring on the closing track on Kendrick Lamar's Damn and the opening of Drake's More Life record last year, popping up on cuts by Chance The Rapper, Anderson Paak and Rhapsody.

They've come a long way since 2011 when the four-piece band operating out of a small home studio in the mid-Northern suburbs of Melbourne, fired out a unique and kaleidoscopic vision of future soul. At once they shook down the paradigm walls and inspired even the U.S originators of the music.

Their first album Tawk Tomahawk took them to the Grammy Awards and the four corners of the globe. As a live act the near-telepathic interplay between the rhythm section of Simon Mavin (keys), Paul Bender (bass) and Perrin Moss (drums) set jaws dropping on a nightly basis. Out the front, vocalist Nai Palm combined soaring vocal technique, emotive guitar work and an irreverent, future-primitive DIY fashion approach which proved spellbinding to all.

Often revelatory, Hiatus Kaiyote's music is also well rooted in all of that rich lineage that makes it feel somehow warmly familiar.

Their phraseology cannot be bound simply by the 4/4 meter; it spills out into rhythmic rivulets which never sound unnatural or clever for clever's sake.

Jazz, soul, funk, fusion, hip hop and electronica are their predominant building blocks - but the resultant sonic shapes blur the edges and defy the pigeonhole.
