Australia’s Hiatus Kaiyote is criss-crossing the globe and winning hearts and ears with their new album, Choose Your Weapon. Their recent stop in New York impressed, as expected, and included a stop to play a few songs on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night. Their chops and general ebullience shone through on stage to play songs new and old. Check out video of the quartet performing “By Fire” and “Breathing Underwater” of their new album, Choose Your Weapon and “Nakamarra” off the Grammy-nominated Tawk Tomahawk after the jump.
