EVENT: Hiatus Kaiyote @ Kings Arms, 3rd September
One of Australia’s most successful and intriguing acts, Hiatus Kaiyote, will play their debut New Zealand shows this September. The future soul band play Auckland’s Kings Arms on Thursday, September 3 and Wellington’s San Fran on Friday, September 4.
In a short couple of years Hiatus Kaiyote have risen from the bohemian shadows of Melbourne to the world’s biggest stages. Nominated for a 2012 Grammy award for their song “Nakamarra” and with a brand-new record Choose Your Weapon the band are bringing their future sound to New Zealand for the first time. Fresh off the back of a performance on US late night show Jimmy Kimmel and with a clutch of 5 star reviews for their new album, Hiatus Kaiyote have been described by The Guardian as a band ”that casually bewitch their fans” and possessing the ability to transport fans to a “psychedelic, mesmerising adventure land”. Their new album Choose Your Weapon is out now via Sony NZ.
