Jan 24, 2018
NEW YORK, Jan. 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Nai Palm, lead singer of Australian multi-Grammy nominated band Hiatus Kaiyote, just released a new video for 'Homebody' from her first solo album Needle Paw (Sony Music Masterworks). 'Homebody' premiered on Complex. View it here: http://www.complex.com/music/2018/01/nai-palm-homebody-video
The video, which was filmed in Victoria, Australia, features Nai Palm using fire swords – performance art that she often practiced prior to the beginning of Hiatus Kaiyote.
"Shooting the video for 'Homebody' was really personal for me," says Nai. "I wanted to celebrate where I come from. My stage name Nai Palm was originally my fire performance name pre-dating any music endeavours. The Hume Weir where we filmed is close to Mount Beauty where I grew up. It was once a valley that was lived in and was eventually evacuated to become a dam. The old eucalyptus trees are still standing in the water and in my early teens I was haunted by their presence. This is my first attempt at executing visual concepts, editing, etc."
Needle Paw features stripped down versions of Hiatus Kaiyote favorites, like 'Atari,' 'Mobius,' and 'Borderline With My Atoms.' The album also features new songs like the single 'Crossfire/So Into You' which Pitchfork named "Best New Track," plus unique takes on classics like Jimi Hendrix's 'Have You Ever Been (To Electric Ladyland).'
Needle Paw is available now. The vinyl is available on February 2nd and features 2-LP 180 gram records in a gatefold jacket with a lyric insert and art print.
