Hailing from the remote Arlparra community in the NT, the unstoppable force that is Newboys Band have triumphantly returned with their second EP, Cheater. Following the success of their self-titled debut release, this explosive Alywarra collective effortlessly fuses desert reggae, rock, and pop influences, launching their sound hundreds of kilometres across the remote Barkly region and out into the hearts and ears of the nation.
Since their debut EP launched in 2022, Newboys have secured a Best Rock Song nomination at the NT Music Awards, received airplay on Triple J, Double J, and Radio National, showcased their talents with phenomenal performances at Desert Harmony Festival, 8CCC’s One Frequency Festival, headlined Tennant Creeks official Territory Day celebrations and set dancefloors alight at countless remote community sports festivals.
