Alana Jagt releases new single ‘Stars of Napperby’

Alana Jagt combines the ancient beauty of Nukunu country with shuffling New Orleans-style funeral blues on ‘Stars Of Napperby’, the new single out today. It’s the latest taste of her forthcoming debut LP Goodbye Grote Bollen, out on October 7.

Jagt’s powerful rasp presides over warped saloon guitars, heartbeat bass and ramshackle percussion, intimating a distinctly Australian childhood spent beneath pristine night skies and the shadow of Wangyarra, in the Southern Flinders Ranges. She explains:

“Napperby is where I grew up, a small village on the edge of Wangyarra (Mount Remarkable) National Park in South Australia’s mid-north. There’s not much there, no shops and almost no light pollution at all. So the stars are spectacular. The song is a reflection of my time there, in awe of the sky and the ranges and the beautiful Napperby Gorge, and my feelings looking back at it all.”
