Watch: Wildfire Manwurrk - Lonely Bangardi

The debut release from these Arnhem Land rockers, taken from their forthcoming EP The Next Future.

From the beautiful and remote Stone Country, Arnhem Land hails the 80s-esque garage rock sounds of Wildfire Manwurrk, a uniquely gifted family of Sires Rostron (vocals, lead guitar), Johnson Rostron (vocals, bass), Scott Cameron (backing vocals, drums), Ernest Rostron (rhythm guitar), Leo Rostron (rhythm guitar), and Victor Rostron (vocals, Didgeridoo (Morle), Clapsticks). Releasing their debut Ep The Next Future in November, the group unveil the first taste with Lonely Bangardi today. 

Sung in age-old endangered languages Kune, Dalabon and Rembarrnga, Lonely Bangardi combines the groups garage rock sounds with a narrative of heartbreak, Sires sharing I wrote this Lonely Bangardi song, because I was so lonely, feeling broken hearted. I was sitting down, looking at country, wondering, and I thought, I’m gonna get up and make this song, ‘Lonely Bangardi’ about myself and how I feel. And I thought, oh yeah, I’ll make Lonely Bangardi into a Rock n Roll song.” 

Released alongside a video captured by Robert Sherwood, directed by Natalie Carey (Valentina Brave) and featuring a cameo from the bands sister, Tiktok star and model Cindy Rostron, it’s a beautiful visual accompaniment that offers a glimpse into the the place that informs our gritty rock and roll sound” Victor explains. 

Out now, be sure to get across Wildfire Manwurrk and their debut release Lonely Bangardi ahead of the full EP’s November 25th.
