Aboriginal lead indie punk band & NIMA nominated act (Best Emerging Talent) Chasing Ghosts came out blazing and unapologetic in 2021 dropping their critically acclaimed EP HOMELANDS via Bad Apples Music. The EP received 4.5/5 stars from Rolling Stone Australia titling them, “the band Australia needs right now.”
The EP features the single Summer, which finds Jimmy Kyle singing in both English and, for the first time ever, in his native tongue as he explores the horrors of the 1856 Towel Creek massacre. The singer-guitarist delivers the song through the eyes of a grieving Aboriginal Elder, telling the story of “Baaba” (Babaang) Jack Scott as a baby; the lone survivor of the Towel Creek tragedy. Incredibly, Kyle learned of a close family link to that Elder through a schoolyard incident when he was young.
Homelands Unplugged sees Thungutti front man Jimmy Kyle head into the studio and re-record the Homelands EP with just him and an acoustic guitar. The result is an intimate stripped back, raw and emotional recording intertwined with a preamble about every song which is sure to engage the listener even more.
