The Australian genre-bending quartet Hiatus Kaiyote have blessed us with a new video for “Breathing Underwater,” one of the many notable tracks from their magnificent sophomore album Choose Your Weapon, one of soulhead’s favorite long players to surface this year. The exquisitely produced video, which debuted via Rolling Stone yesterday, juxtaposes stunning images of water, sand and stone with the band’s stirring, Stevie Wonder-inspired performance.

Lead vocalist & lyricist Nai Palm has explained the song’s earthly symbolism, describing it as an “homage to the different examples of love and compassion in the world that are beyond the limitation of romance. I used arid imagery to depict this—for example, the Jericho rose, an African resurrection plant, can survive dormant without water for over a hundred years. If it rains, it can bloom within minutes showcasing the immense power of nurture.”

Indulge your ears and eyes with the video below, and be sure to catch Hiatus Kaiyote on their current tour, the U.S. leg of which kicks off October 2nd in San Diego, CA.
