RELEASES INSPIRATIONAL NEW SINGLE
“KEEP ROLLING ON“
CELEBRATING INDIGENOUS RESILIENCE AND RECONCILIATION
Renowned Indigenous Australian artist Yirrmal is set to captivate audiences again with his latest single, “Keep Rolling On.” The song, written by Yirrmal and Neil Murray, is a powerful anthem of strength and resilience that highlights the enduring spirit of First Nations peoples. The music video, beautifully shot by Patrick de Teliga and renowned fashion photographer Simon Upton, showcases Yirrmal’s personal journey to date in a candid and unassuming behind the scenes reveal.
“Keep Rolling On” is a testament to Yirrmal‘s remarkable storytelling abilities and deep connection to his Yolŋu heritage. The song’s heartfelt lyrics convey a message of hope, determination, and unity, while the stirring melody and Yirrmal‘s soulful vocals transport listeners on an emotional journey.
Yirrmal, a proud Yolŋu man from North-East Arnhem Land, has always used his music as a platform for social change and reconciliation. With “Keep Rolling On,” he continues this tradition, aiming to inspire and uplift both Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities alike.
Yirrmal shared his thoughts on the track, saying, “I believe music has the power to heal and connect people. ‘Keep Rolling On’ is my way of sharing our stories and celebrating the incredible strength of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. It’s a song about resilience and hope, and I hope it brings us all closer to reconciliation.”
Having already wowed festival-goers at this year’s Darwin, Bluesfest and Woodford Folk Festivals, audiences were left enchanted and deeply moved by Yirrmal‘s charismatic and powerful performances, solidifying his reputation as a musical force to be reckoned with.“Yirrmal kicked off his second Bluesfest performance with a new single and impressive acapella notes. Backed only by delicate guitar melodies, his incredibly powerful high range made for a near-religious experience, easing the crowd into a more energetic second number and beyond. Brass and backing harmonies filled out the sound, buoyant with the energy of everyone else on stage,” raved The Music.
Yirrmal‘s singer-songwriting prowess is a testament to his passionate outlook and profound connection to his land and ancestry. Through his unapologetic and authentic storytelling, Yirrmal masterfully weaves together tales of love, reflection, and the rich cultural heritage of Indigenous peoples.
