PART PALADIN To Release New Single

Share This:

A thud of heavy, a splash of colour, a brood of mood. Part Paladin is a project created by Sydney-based (Gadigal Land) indigenous instrumentalist/producer Dux Newton.

Today, Dux announces the release of his new single, Koedal. It will be released on all digital stores and streaming platforms on Friday, January 21 at

Koedal, pronounced “kah-dahl”, roughly translates to ‘clan’ – Dux’s father’s clan is Aith Koedal. The clan originates on Saibai Island in the Torres Strait between Queensland, Australia’s north-eastern-most tip and Papua New Guinea – and is associated with a Crocodile Totem.

Dux Newton, the engine room and creative force behind Part Paladin, said of the new single and his music in general, “Being of Indigenous (Torres Strait Islander) background but growing up and living away from that part of my heritage, Koedal speaks to my struggles with identity, and an existence with knowledge and experiences only of my western heritage. It calls on an urge to discover it and explores the concept of becoming whole once I find and am at peace with the missing parts of my bloodline.”
