Loving and Caring is a tribute to band member Tara Rostron’s late sister, blending Kune and English lyrics to deliver an emotional message. The music video, co-directed by Jodie Kell, Tara Rostron, Kai McGilvray, and Anje Rosendell-Piper, showcases the beauty of Maningrida, from freshwater escarpments to saltwater coasts. It features dance by Sethlena Olsen from the Maningrida Dance Group, symbolizing hope and positivity for the community’s youth.
