Born from consecutive touring after the runaway success of 2015’s Choose Your Weapon and their many sample credits on works by hip-hop royalty (The Carters, Kendrick Lamar, Chance The Rapper, to name a few), Hiatus Kaiyote’s third LP Mood Valiant is a release twinged with change and loss — not least because of COVID-19’s impact on their live schedule. Early in the writing process, guitarist and vocalist Nai Palm was diagnosed with breast cancer, and upon healing from a life-saving mastectomy, illuminated her lyricism anew.

The perspective of ‘And We Go Gentle’ is one of someone approaching death’s door, seeking answers about what lies beyond, belied by Kaiyote’s signature swagger of funk-soul fusion. ‘All The Words We Don’t Say’ similarly contains some emotive sleight of hand, a crumbling world of life’s regrets coated in a furious progressive jazz punch. Cult Brazilian composer and bandleader Arthur Verocai opens up a whole new dimension of textures for the group on ‘Get Sun’ and ‘Stone Or Lavender’, adorning their electric energy with a touch of orchestral string section class.

Mood Valiant is an appropriate title for a group — and indeed, a whole planet — facing unforeseeably altered realities. It’s a triumphant cry in the dark: we will live to funk another day.
