Sydney's Alt-R'&B cosmonauts have recently performed at Woodford Festival19/20 over the New Year. Playing 5 shows over 7 days and celebrating the NewYear at the Amphitheatre. A mixed breed of producers and singer-songwriters,Gold Member swing in the space between the palms and the wild, blue galaxy,launching sultry and soulful, sample soaked songs into the solar system.‘Stay On’ their latest single, is their most charged track. Speaking aboutIndigenous identity in white Australia, and the struggles ofliving in a system ofcultural oppression.
Az explains:“‘Stay On’ is a perspective on white privilege and the way indigenous people havehad their way of life and identity robbed from them, their culture not beingacknowledged and respected enough, andtheir country being stolen anddestroyed for a white man’s capitalist agenda. Modern society expectsindigenous people to simply cope and change our identity to fit in their way oflife.”
