Song Review: ‘Nakamarra’ by Hiatus Kaiyote

LYRICS:


VERSE 1:
Hannah my darling I will follow you into the sunrise under desert sky
We fly, rise together with our hearts upon our sleeves for all to see
We two will breathe, aqua queen though vast distance between us, heart sails with love

For you, I love you, I love you I do
Love you, I love you, I love you I do

VERSE 2:
Nakamarra sweet red earth will hold you like the strength you bless to me
True we engage humility, watch me struggle with your words however truthful they may be
We’ll see in time, opening our hearts and nurturing our minds to shine

I love you, love you, I love you I do
Love you, I love you, I love you I do

BRIDGE
Oh it sets our hearts to fire, sweeps you and I
Honey don’t you, know it sets our heart to fire, sweeps you and I
Honey don’t you, know we two will pulse love in through this light
Honey don’t you, know we two will pulse

I’ll always love you, love you, love you I do
Love you, I love you, I love you I do

My Review


I love this song. I can listen to it over and over again. Hiatus Kaiyote is Australian band who films this video in the beautiful “Outback” of their country. They are the epitome of what Neo Soul means (New Soul). The style of their clothing matches the personality of the style of melody which is erratic. Erratic is a perfect word to describe this song since it means: “not even or regular in pattern or movement; unpredictable.” They are all over the map on this song, starting with a stutter pattern and then it slides during the chorus, then back again. The bridge then climbs up with an emotional shout: “Honey Don’t Ya!” As I said, I can listen to it over and over again. And it’s because of the change of pace throughout the song.
