Before I begin there are a couple things I wanted to make known first. During the editing process of this video I experience several setbacks such as computer issues and dissatisfaction with the audio & video quality. While jostling with the idea of making the interview just print, I felt that reading words on screen could not capture the energy and vibe of Hiatus Kaiyote. That was the most priceless element of this interview to me. Hopefully you all feel the same. Enjoy.
On 2/17/13 I got the opportunity to interview the amazing future soul group Hiatus Kaiyote via Skype. The group drew praise and support for their debut album “Tawk Tomahawk” from musical icons such as Erykah Badu, Questlove, DJ Jazzy Jeff and many more. With that eclectic backing and a growing international fan base, they are set to embark on their 1st worldwide tour collectively. Their travels start in the United States on 3/11/13 with the acclaimed music festival SXSW, performances in various cities in the US and later this year Europe.
Before their much awaited trip, the talent and charismatic members Nai Palm, Simon Mavin, Perrin Moss and Paul Bender chopped it up with me much to my delight. A few things discussed include the groups’ origin, the musical soundscape of Melbourne, their upcoming trip to my hometown of Philly and who would play them in the movie of their amazing journey. Watch the interview below and get familiar with the rising stars known as Hiatus Kaiyote.
