Joining DOBBY on the new track on backing vocals is the collective force of Melbourne based The Merindas. Ballardong Whadjuk and Nyoongar woman Kristel Kickett and Candice Lorrae of Jawoyn and Thursday Island heritage.
The Merindas have forged a name for themselves as Australia’s emerging soul sisters, with their innovative style of Indigenous music which they as “electronic pop with a dance-hall feel, alongside hip hop and R&B.”
“The damage done to our culture and way of life is evident in invisibility; white Australia’s daily mantra of “get over it / it was years ago / you’re not black / you’re one of the good ones / let it go”… But my existence is resistance, I know who I am, and I represent a fundamental truth that is rising to the surface. This is Walk Away.” Says DOBBY on Walk Away.
