More Hinterland More Hinterland

Hinterland dropped their latest single on July 1 – and now, we have our first look at the accompanying music video in this exclusive premiere.

Stay In Your Lane, the group’s sixth single, takes a distinctly country turn, shelving the big sound of their chart hits Loud and Treating Me Good for a more traditional country sing-along flavour. 

Stay In Your Lane is about focusing on your own journey and success, not comparing yourself to others,” said vocalist Jesse Emmanuel. “I think we’re all guilty of it from time to time and often we overlook our own wins and don’t give ourselves enough credit if we aren’t kicking the same goals as someone else. But everyone is on a different path and has a unique story.” 

With their big stomping singles In The Hinterland, Loud, Giddy Up and Treating Me Good all hitting the top 10 of the Countrytown Hot 50 Country Airplay Chart, Stay In Your Lane shows a softer, more traditional side to the band. 

“We have so many influences and such an appreciation of all the sub-genres of country like traditional, acoustic, singer-songwriter as well as the rock and pop of the contemporary styles. With Stay In Your Lane we wanted to achieve that catchy sing-along chorus melody with our 3 part harmonies and then integrate those western guitar sounds, pedal steel and fiddle.” 

“I was listening to a lot of Kacey Musgraves, Chris Stapleton and The McClymonts when this song came together, and it was nice to bring those influences into the studio. Once again, Robbie nailed the production and the multiple instruments you hear on the track and Rachel’s fiddle and harmonies are the sugary sweet icing on top. The lyrics can be a little cheeky, it’s kind of a ‘tough love’ delivery but the overall message is to just sit back, enjoy the ride and take care of yourself; it's not about the finish line, it’s about the journey.”

The Gold Coast trio have always run their own race. From launching the band during COVID lockdowns, through to coming out of the gate with made-for-stadium country-rock stompers, the band have taken artistic decisions and a career path that has been uniquely Hinterland. 

Hinterland’s unique story began with the members playing together in duos The Bostocks (Rachel and Robbie) and The Daisy Dukes (Rachel and Jesse) before combining to pursue their mutual goal of becoming an original country music stadium act.

Rachel Bostock is one of the most revered violinists in Australia and a 3-time Golden Fiddle Award winner. Robbie Bostock is a National Songwriting Award winner and has toured the world playing guitar on the biggest stages with some of our huge homegrown talent. Jesse Emmanuel (daughter of legendary guitarist Phil Emmanuel) also has an APRA Songwriter Award under her belt and has co-written recent hits for Taylor Moss, Sabrina Durante and more.
