While Seth Sentry would probably be offended by the choice of words that his music has 'matured', it is meant as a compliment. His latest single, the moody and vividly detailed Wrong One, marks a new point in his career that is a noticeable level-up. 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. So maybe matured isn't quite the word, but as time goes on Seth Sentry sure-footedly climbs closer to the apex of being a legit grandmaster of his craft.
Each of Seth Sentry's album's 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 on Jimmy 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.
