A long time coming, Mood Valiant serves as an indicator of triumph for Melbourne future soul champions Hiatus Kaiyote.
Initially halted due to frontwoman Nai Palm’s diagnosis with breast cancer, the resulting album is one that sees the group showcasing their strength, versatility, and power through its hypnotic, almost kaleidoscopic compositions. Dizzying vocals, complex rhythms, and stunning compositions turn this into one of the year’s best.
