First Nations artist Mia Lovelock has enlisted First Nations rap artist ChillCheney on her new single, Water Into Waves. The duo debuted the song on stage earlier this month at NAIDOC In The City.

Drawing inspiration from their indigenous heritage, the empowering cut finds Lovelock sending a message of strength and resilience. Serving as a call to take control of your own narrative and power, the track places the singers distorted vocals with ChillCheney confident flow to create a dynamic performance atop a textural soundscape that weaves together sonic threads of electronica, pop and folk.

“Inspired by conversations at Blaksound during ARIA week, Water Into Waves emerged from a creative writing session,” says Mia. “The song explores themes of first nations people taking control of their own path, and our connection to country and songlines.”

Growing up in Arnhem Land and Papua New Guinea Lovelock studied at the Contemporary Music Centre in Sydney, following years of busking and performing with friends. Weaving together sonic threads of folk, modern electronica and indie-pop, Water Into Waves is the latest in a string of singles, including Last Night, Endure and The Game. Away from music, Lovelock has turned her attention to fashion, creating one-of-a-kind garments.
