Ngaiire’s Top Five Australian ‘Brown Gals’
In honour of her album, Blastoma, which is out today (cue screams of excitement) NGAIIRE in her own words has given Purple Sneakers her Top Five tracks from Australian ‘Brown Gals’. Highlighting other amazing acts within the indigenous Australian community.
A festival queen, with slots like Glastonbury and Falls Festival under her belt, Ngaiire is fresh off the road from Groovin’ The Moo, but she doesn’t look to be stopping anytime soon.
With her brand new, and much anticipated album, ‘Blastoma’ out today, from which we’ve already had a taste of what’s to come with killer tracks like ‘Once’ and ‘House on a Rock,’ it’s no surprise to hear that Ngaiire‘s gearing up to go back on tour again.
A massive national tour that gives the finger to acts who call a single show in Melbourne and Sydney respectively an ‘Australian tour,’ Ngaiire has nine dates already lined up, not to mention a slot at the sold out in seconds Splendour in the Grass.
It’s a wonder Ngaiire even has time to stop and listen to music, but she evidently does, so, without further ado, here are Ngaiire‘s Top Five Australian ‘Brown Gal’ Tracks.
Okenyo – 10 Feet Tall
Ecca Vandal – End of Time
Thando – Trouble
Sampa the Great – Blue Boss
All Dulled Out – Kira Puru
