Watch: Bumpy - Return Home

Watch: Bumpy - Return Home

The rising talent soars in her latest single, a powerful ode to home with an equally moving clip to accompany.

Making her debut in 2020 with the release of Falling, Naarm/ Melbourne based Noongar artist Bumpy today releases her follow-up single Return Home, a meticulously crafted pop ballad fused with new-soul and jazz-like elements. No stranger to the stage, playing festivals such as Rabbits Eat Lettuce, Strawberry Fields, Grampians Music Festival, Melbourne Fashion Week, Melbourne Music Week (where she also curated a First Nations showcase Wominjeka), Boogie Festival and St Kilda Festival and supporting the likes of Hiatus Kaiyote, Bumpy has been catching attention locally receiving a Music Victoria nomination for the Archie Roach Award for Emerging Talent, and nationally from triple j, Unearthed, Frankie Magazine, Trouble Juice, SBS The Feed, ABC Radio National. 

With a smooth but powerful voice that effortlessly radiates with such heart and soul, Bumpy commands Return Home through its near four-minute duration, as swells of strings, warm pluck of guitars, gritty bass lines, and grounding drum hits provide a beautifully orchestrated accompaniment. Hypnotic and vulnerable, she sings about her journey of self-discovery, her feelings of connection to her name, her ancestors, and to the water and the land. Celebrating these connections cinematically, the accompanying music video captures those sacred places, people and traditions, keeping true to its name as an ode to home and “the connections that make us feel grounded and at ease” Bumpy shares. 

Performing next month at Astral People’s Birthday at Sydney Opera House alongside Hiatus Kaiyote, Yussef Dayes and Mildlife, we’re sure we’ll hear a lot more from this incredible talent. But for now be sure to sit back and take in the beauty of Bumpy’s Return Home - out now below.
