DOBBY Releases New Single 'Matter of Time' Ahead of Debut Album Launch

The track is a dynamic fusion of sharp string melodies and DOBBY’s rapid-fire raps, delivering a poignant message on environmental injustice. As the song progresses, it steadily builds momentum, putting the meaning front and center with each crescendo.

“‘Matter of Time’ echoes the ancestral rhythms against the backdrop of Brewarrina’s sacred Baiame’s Ngunnhu, calling out the over-irrigation of the Murray-Darling Basin,” shared DOBBY. “Through this song, I share an urgent truth: our environment and heritage hang in the balance, reminding us it’s only a matter of time until we act or lose it all to climate disaster.”

DOBBY’s debut album, WARRANGU: River Story, is eagerly anticipated, and he has already unveiled two singles from the album, “Dirrpi Yuin Patjulinya” and “Ancestor,” which have garnered acclaim from various platforms including National Indigenous Times, triple j, Double J, FBi Radio, and Happy Mag.

WARRANGU: River Story delves into the cultural significance of the three rivers that delineate the tribal boundaries in Brewarrina: the Bogan River to the South, the Culgoa River to the North, and the Barwon River to the East. Additionally, the album addresses the pressing issues of over-irrigation and water theft prevalent in the region.

DOBBY’s diverse talents as a composer have been showcased in previous projects, including creating soundscapes for Alice Springs’ PARRTJIMA festival in 2021 and 2022, and contributing to Elevate Sydney’s 500-drone show in 2022 and 2023.

With the release of ‘Matter of Time,’ DOBBY once again demonstrates his ability to blend artistry with activism, using his music to shed light on important social and environmental issues. As anticipation for WARRANGU: River Story continues to grow, fans can expect an album that not only celebrates culture but also calls for action in preserving our heritage and environment.
