Hiatus Kaiyote f/ Q-Tip – “Nakamarra” (Remix) | New Music


Australian future soul/jazz group Hiatus Kaiyote are re-releasing their excellent debut album Tawk Tomahawkand with it comes a flurry of remixes and new features – including a Q-Tip guest spot on lead single “Nakamarra.”

Having been tipped for greatness already by the taste-making likes of Questlove, Erykah Badu and Gilles Peterson, Hiatus Kaiyote are making waves with their jazz-infused, laid back approach to soul and song writing. “Nakamarra” builds around lead vocalist Nai Palm‘s smooth flowing vocals and a beautifully soft, twinkling guitar and piano riff. To the track’s infectiously jittering chorus and driving bridge, Q-Tip adds his signature flow and abstract lyrics in a brief verse before joining back in to the jazz-timed chorus. Take a listen to the cut below.
