Recently crowned West Australian Music's Best Regional Act 2019, the conscious roots collab from Margaret River, Blue Child Collective, is powering into the new year with their new single "Golden".

Set for release January 17 at The River, the track is a quick follow up to the release of the group's third documentary, titled "The Art Of Sound" in November, and paves the way for the release of two more singles and their fifth studio album later this year.

Written on a Mt Maunganui sunrise while on tour in New Zealand, "Golden" sees Blue Child Collective exploring new sounds, blending elements of indie folk and roots to produce a track in a similar vein to "Crosses" by Jose Gonzalez and Bon Iver's smash hit "Holocene", yet featuring a solid percussion bed, baritone vocals and clever group singalong.

The single will be accompanied by a music video shot on Super 8 film due to drop February 17, and will see the group back across to New Zealand for a run of headline shows and festivals.

Band leader and director of the WA Guitar Festival, Dan White said he was really excited for the year ahead.

"It feels like all the work we've been putting in touring to connect with our audience and the huge focus we've put on content creation in order to continue delivering quality and quantity to those fans over the last five years is coming together.

"There's plenty in the pipeline for 2020," White said.

Blue Child Collective will launch "Golden" at The River this Friday January 17.
