Ribongia continues to push boundaries with new single, ‘Golden’
RIBONGIA continues his run of impressive new music this year with another stellar release! Always one for finding unique vocalists to complement and enhance his rhythmic beats, this time he’s teamed up with newcomer OWEN RABBIT for ‘Golden’. An exciting, uplifting listen, ‘Golden’ is full of unexpected beats, clanging percussion, and daring melodies. It’s further proof of this producer’s verve and inventiveness.
Shedding light on the idea behind the track, Ribongia explains:
‘Golden’ is about the Eucalyptus tree. These trees need bush-fires to complete their life cycles. They have evolved to be more flammable because they need fire to die to make space for their seeds to germinate. I saw this as a parable, easing my fear of pain and change. It also serves as a natural, recurring reminder that nothing is immutable, our fate is bound to natural laws and we are stupid if we think we’re in control.
Owen Rabbit’s smooth vocals and Ribongia’s clean production bring this idea to life, creating an experience which sonically surprises at every turn. The track turns down in the very best way possible.
The good news is that you can catch Ribongia live somewhere near you, and soon. His label, Poster Child, is sending him out on an East Coast tour later this year, with shows in Sydney, Wollongong and Adelaide, with festival appearances at THIS THAT in Newcastle and Lost Paradise over New Years Eve. This is an act you definitely don’t want to miss!
