After living in Australia for a decade, Irish born singer-songwriter Áine Tyrrell has carved a unique musical path melding her own Irish roots from the ancient limestone rocks of County Clare with her respect of the red dirt roads of 60,000 years of Indigenous culture in Australia. It is this longstanding connection between the Irish story and the experience of Indigenous Australia in regards to colonialism that Tyrrell calls on in her powerful, gut wrenching call to arms "We Call You Now".

The 7-minute ‘cultural smackdown’ is a departure in style and tone for Áine, who gathers force in a wildly emotive spoken word rant that is reminiscent of the musical poetry of rock greats like Patti Smith.

The song came after her invitation by the Bunyarra Culture Collective to be part of the Black Lives Matter protest in June in Byron Bay. After sitting deeply with some people’s reactions that claim Irish heritage, Áine penned a 7-minute history lesson and invited The Bunyarra Culture Collective to join in on the track. The Bunyarra Culture Collective and Áine have been collaborating on stage, on screen, and in education spaces for over 2 years now and this is their new powerful offering.

The new song and the clip will be out 14 August and celebrated with a collaborative launch of music, dance, art, visual projections and fire ceremony at the Brunswick Picture House with Áine Tyrrell and the Bunyarra Culture Collective on Friday, 21 and Saturday, 22 August.
