Giant Step Presents: Hiatus Kaiyote
Eclectic tunes from Stereogum’s top band to watch
The music of Melbourne based Hiatus Kaiyote’s been described as a fusion of future beats, a healthy dose of hip-hop, neo-soul, dubstep, and often operatic. It’s safe to say they’ve managed to create a sound unlike anything else out there. No surprise that Erykah Badu, The Roots, and Flying Lotus have all sung the band’s praises. Plus, the show won’t disappoint with Emily King and DJ Rich Medina on the bill. Oh, did we mention Hiatus Kaiyote had a tweet from Prince gushing over them? Pretty rad. General admission. Over 18s only.
"Australia’s Hiatus Kaiyote seem like they could serve as the soundtrack to pretty much anything - they blend what sounds like the score of a futuristic western with the daily grind of urban life."
