Nai Palm of Hiatus Kaiyote's flawless solo, debut album Needle Paw is available everywhere now, with vinyl coming February 2018.
Celebrated by musicians from the late Prince, to Questlove, Erykah Badu and Chance The Rapper, and sampled by a wide range of artists including Drake, Kendrick Lamar and Anderson .Paak, Hiatus Kaiyote’s success sets the stage for Nai’s first solo effort.
Comprised almost entirely of her guitar playing and vocal arrangements, Needle Paw is Nai Palm’s self-imposed challenge to explore the potential for immortality and timelessness within her music by stripping away the produced layers to focus on the element that is closest to the source of the human soul, the voice.
“This record is a very personal leap into the deep end. I wanted to make something with no landmarks to hide behind and no team to fall back on.” - Nai Palm
