Seth Sentry today has released his new single ‘Wrong One’, the first new music since his 2017 single ‘Play It Safe’.The long-awaited news from one of the country’s most iconic rappers is also joined by news of live shows. The Wrong One Single Tour begins in Brisbane on June 7th travelling to Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Bunbury and Adelaide with tickets on sale Monday May 13th.
The new track ‘Wrong One’, his first through Island Records Australia, is available from here.
With elements of psychedelic rock and bluesy guitar, Wrong One’s layers run deep, both musically and lyrically. With production by friend and long-time collaborator Styalz Fuego, as well as multi-instrumentalist Carl Dimitaga, Wrong One combines crispy clean modern rap tones with the classic sounds of ’70s rock. Dig deeper, and Seth’s filmic imagination once again permeates his songwriting, adding a lyrical scope to Wrong One that conjures images of characters that fall somewhere between Sergio Leone’s Man With No Name and Boba Fett.
More controlled and crafted, the song smacks of experience without losing the irreverent charm that made people fall in love with him to begin with.
“When I write I usually have a little movie playing in my head,” Seth explains. “This movie takes place in the moments before the final stand. The last shootout. There’s a price on my head, and every bounty hunter in the country is here to collect it. Surrounded by dirty lawmen with shiny gold stars – high horses and low morals – I’m not going out without a fight. Besides, what kind of man would put a bounty on his own head?”
Each of Seth’s albums have been marked by progression – both musically and in terms of his career. His debut album This Was Tomorrow was an instant classic, sending him on an impossible tear that manifested in a gold record, an ARIA nomination, Channel [V] Artist Of The Year and a dream-come-true appearance onJimmy Kimmel Live. He earned a legion of fans worldwide, cementing himself not just as one of the decade’s most exciting new artists, but as a jaw-dropping live performer.
Snowballing this momentum, Seth’s second album Strange New Past was a monumental step forward that brought its own rewards. Defined by its honesty and introspection, Strange New Past debuted at #2 on the ARIA charts, was a Triple J Feature Album, won both an ARIA Award and an AIR Award, and spawned a staggering four Triple J high rotation singles in Run, Hell Boy, Dumb and 1969. It was an insane run, supported by endless miles of touring and spawning millions of streams and views.
“His triumph is his commitment to making progress while others around him stagnate. That’s artistry. That’s humility. That’s what an intelligent rapper should be striving for.” – The Music
Wrong One is the first taste of Seth’s forthcoming third album (due late 2019) – keep a look out on his website and socials for further announcements.
