Jungaji releases new heartfelt single 'River Girl'

Joseph Guenzler -

Gugu Yalanji songman Jungaji has released his new single 'River Girl'.

The track, blending harmonies and storytelling, evolving into a rock'n'roll jam infused with outback Motown vibes, termed "wilegundamal" in Gugu Yalanji, translating to "heaven on earth".

Jungaji, the Magandjin/Brisbane artist, recently performed at the Port Fairy Folk Festival and featured on the Archie Roach stage.

His band now heads to a sold-out Princess Theatre gig in Brisbane on Saturday, supporting Songs From The Canyon, with additional shows to follow.

"River Girl celebrates matrimony, companionship and being as one with your soul mate," Jungaji said.

"There was so much healing and positive vibes in creating the record because when I think of a river I imagine beautiful running mountain water and when you immerse yourself in all its healing power, it's a feeling of being alive.

"When you marry that up with ones love whether it be the infancy stages of a relationship or you've been together 50 years, this song is an anthem for you."

'River Girl' by Jungaji celebrates love and acknowledges the importance of partners and soulmates, set against a backdrop of visual beauty that highlights the wonders of the land.

The song reflects Jungaji's admiration for women in society, inviting listeners to immerse themselves in the same rivers that inspired this timeless piece, evoking a joyful response.

Jungaji's 'River Girl' was produced by Cody McWaters, an ARIA Award winner known for his work with various artists such as King Stingray, The Chats, Selfish Sons, Osaka Punch, and Rewiggled.

The single was recorded at Hunting Ground Studios in Meanjin (Brisbane).

Tickets for his upcoming show atthe Mt. Nebo Hall, west of Meanjin are available now.
