Thelma Plum

Gamilaraay woman, singer and songwriter Thelma Plum returns to Splendour! She has been making music her whole life and has told one chapter with her debut album Better in Blak – a story about culture, heritage, love, and pain. With incredible strength, courage and heartbreaking tenderness, her debut album captures so deftly what it’s like to be a young Aboriginal woman in Australia. In May 2022, the first taste of an expansive trove of new music from Thelma Plum was released. The Meanjin EP is a love letter to Meanjin / Brisbane where Thelma grew up and where she was based during lockdown. Spawning the singles Backseat of My Mind and The Brown Snake, it’s an EP which captured people’s hearts and garnered multiple ARIA nominations as well as two places in the triple j Hottest 100. Her most recent single We Don’t Talk About It had its global premiere on Zane Lowe’s Apple Music 1 show — an incredible testament to her rise in music. Thelma is preparing to reveal more, having been writing and recording music in London and Brisbane for her forthcoming sophomore album.

The adventure is always. And there is much more to come, and Thelma looks forward to you buckling up and joining her for the ride!
