King Stingray – Milkumana

King Stingray are a five-piece band from Yirrkala, a community in North-Australia. It was formed by Roy Kellaway and Yirrŋa Yunupiŋu, who are relatives of Yothu Yindi founders Stu Kellaway and Mandawuy Yunupiŋu. In the early ‘90s, Yothu Yindi were instrumental in voicing the push for Aboriginal recognition. Their hit single Treaty is one of the most important tracks in Australian history.

So, there are big shoes to fill here, but King Stingray’s star is rising fast! Milkhumana is only their third single, following accidental lockdown anthem Get Me Out and debut single Hey Wanhaka. It’s an upbeat track with a disco-leaning groove. Although it’s partly sung in Yolŋu Matha, it’s catchy enough to sing along to (or pretending to do so). Kellaway explains: “It’s about role models and the importance of setting good examples for the new generation.” Who could be against that?
