Newboys Band have officially arrived with their debut self-titled EP release – a five song introduction to the heart of the remote Arlparra Community in the Barkly Region of the Northern Territory.

Fusing elements from the iconic desert reggae genre, rock and pop, proud sons of the Alaywarr Nation the Newboys Band sing for their people, their community and their Country. The Barkly Regional Arts produced EP offers just a taste of the immense talent and energy of the growing powerhouse that is the Newboys Band.

One of the hardest working bands in the NT scene; Newboys are not afraid to travel huge distances to play festivals, sports carnivals or anywhere there is an opportunity to plug in and play.

Their most popular song, Travelling to Wanarn was the result of an invitation to perform at a festival thousands of kilometres away in Wanarn on the Ngaanyatjarra Lands in Western Australia. The song explores the band’s cross-cultural experience, travelling to different Countries and meeting other language groups for a chance to share their music with a wider audience.

Fresh off the back of explosive performances at Tennant Creek’s Territory Day, Desert Harmony Festival, and Bush Bands Bash,  Newboys are ready to take their infectious melodies and high-energy gigs across the country.

Take a listen to the sounds sweeping the Barkly right now, available on all streaming platforms.
