"...let’s just make weird quirky things that we love and less of the internal voices that tell you you’re not good enough… All of those voices were just hushed because when you experience something as big as facing your mortality, the little things don’t matter anymore."

Nai Palm

Twice Grammy-nominated Australian four-piece Hiatus Kaiyote were probably last on your radar in 2015 following the release of second album Choose Your Weapon. Their short 'hiatus' allowed time to focus on personal projects but also recoup, regroup and begin the recording of album number 3, their first for Brainfeeder. Emily caught up with Nai Palm and Paul Bender to discuss overcoming life-altering challenges, uniting in art, the brilliance of Arthur Verocai, friendship and their valiant journey to creating this stunning new record.
