Tuesday Tunesday #25 | Hiatus Kaiyote – By Fire


You know when you hear a new song that is so amazingly complex and exciting that you just have to stop what you’re doing and really listen to it?

That is this song. ‘By Fire’ has such a cool groove and so many layers that it defies categorisation. From jazz, to funk, to electronica, this song has it all and it takes more than one listen to really soak it all in.

Haitus Kaiyote hail from Melbourne and they aren’t just some new band on the block. Their debut album from 2012 gained worldwide attention, even receiving a Grammy nomination in the ‘Best R&B performance’ category for a song off their debut album, Tawk Tomahawk. 

This isn’t your standard song. There is no formula here, just very, very good music with a unique edge.

Can’t wait to listen to more from this band and to go back and listen to their first album!
