Turning Heads with August Billy

Komang (Rosie Clynes)

October 5, 2020

Turning Heads episode 18 features a conversation with Melbourne musician Rosie Clynes aka Komang. Rosie launched the Komang project in early 2020 and released her first single, 'Dewi', in late August.

It's a great pop song featuring soulful electronic production and a strong dance beat. It also contains layered lyrical meaning and a strong melodic core. It's the first taste of Komang's "Mythologies" EP, which is due in the early months of 2021.

Rosie conceived the song while based in Jakarta, working as an actor. Living and working in Indonesia had a big impact on Rosie's ambitions for her life and art, something we speak about in the podcast.

We also talk about the themes explored in 'Dewi', the significance of representation in the arts for marginalised identities, and whether humans are all they're cracked up to be. 

Turning heads is recorded on the stolen land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation; the traditional custodians of the land. I pay my respects to their elders past and present, and acknowledge that sovereignty has never been ceded.
