- :: King Stingray on Up for It! with Bindi Mutiara
King Stingray’s latest single ‘Lookin’ Out’ showcases the band’s signature guitar rock sound; straightforward but with a depth that evokes the Australian landscape, something the band say is a key inspiration for their work.
Band members Dima (vocals/guitar), Lewis (drums) and Campbell (bass) joined Bindi Mutiara on Up for It! to go deeper into the thinking behind their inspirations, their new track and what their recent Australian tour – their first – meant to them.
Bindi: “Can you tell us the story behind ‘Lookin’ Out’?”
Dima: “Basically, talk about the environment and the people. Especially the homelands and the resources we have. Also, a lifetime of people living with the family, amongst the family…”
With its driving beat ‘Lookin’ Out’ brings a crucial, human element – fun – which suffuses the spacious sound to make for a well-considered, purposeful sense of joy in the music. Having released their self-titled debut album just over a year ago, King Stingray’s exuberant sound has a markedly mature soulful intention that will keep us, as they say, stomping the ground for a long time to come.
“[Lookin’ Out is] asking you to slow it down and take your time. You know, where you want to take your journey.”
It’s an exciting time for King Stingray as a maturing band that is cementing their place in the Aussie scene. Listen back to the full interview with Bindi up top, and buy/stream their latest single ‘Lookin’ Out’ below.
