This week’s PBS Feature Album is the debut, self-titled LP from King Stingray.

Across 10 tracks, the NT band have announced their mission statement – to open the eyes of a nation while simultaneously rocking out. With their trademark Yolŋu surf-rock sound, the tight-knit crew of Yolŋu (Aboriginal people of northeast Arnhem Land) and balanda (non-Indigenous) musicians have produced an instant classic.

It’s not all just rock n’ roll. King Stingray’s tracks follow an ancient tradition of manikay (song/songlines) that dates back tens of thousands of years. These songlines share a profound love of country and Mother Earth. King Stingray’s DIY ethos and connection to home and family also resonates through every song, from the funk-laden joy of 'Milkumana', to the soaring 'Milk Mirri Wayin', the sweet melancholy of 'Get Me Out', the boppy fun of 'Camp Dog', the punk rock thrash of 'Raypirri' and the acoustic beauty of album closer 'Life Goes On'.
