As the frontwoman of Australian neo-soul outfit Hiatus Kaiyote, Nai Palm has nestled herself comfortably in the public eye due to her ingenuity in songwriting and musicianship. A self-taught artist in numerous disciplines, her songs have always barreled down an experimental pathway that showcases variety and a pure desire to challenge listeners as much as entertain them. Following the release of Hiatus Kaiyote's Grammy-nominated Choose Your Weapon, Nai Palm has returned with a tour and a new album, Needle Paw.
Needle Paw features acoustic covers of Haitus Kaiyote fan favorites, a couple of covers, and new additions from Nai Palm's personal songbook. It's an album that's equally enticing to fans and newcomers of her work- for those who are unfamiliar to her work, the minimal instrumentation smattered with vocal arrangements provides a look at the intricacies of her songwriting while showcasing her talents at reimagining the work of others.
