Melbourne rapper Seth Sentry has debuted at an impressive #6 on the ARIA Charts this week, with his first full-length album This Was Tomorrow. The album has been collecting a long list of glowing reviews, including from triple j radio as their Feature Album all of this week.
The huge national album tour has kicked off this week, including a much-talked about set at Newcastle’s Fat As Butter Festival. With the Queensland shows now ticked off, Seth has 6 Australian states left to visit. Dominating the airwaves with the infectious singles My Scene and Float Away, Seth Sentry has dropped one of the most anticipated albums of 2012 with his killer debut. The maiden release on Seth’s own label, High Score Records, This Was Tomorrow has found itself falling into the welcome arms of fans and industry alike.
Drawing listeners in with an unpretentious and utterly relatable voice, This Was Tomorrow leaves the conventions of Australian hip hop for new ground, and shows just how advanced Seth Sentry has become as an artist, and just how limitless the genre can be. Featuring production from Styalz Fuego (360), Trials (Funkoars, Drapht) and Matik (Pez, Bliss n Eso), This Was Tomorrow exhibits a perfect balance of classic hip hop samples and cuts, and live band energy.
The album’s second single, Float Away has projected Seth to a whole new level. The 70’s British comedy-inspired film clip received over 18,000 views in under a week. It was written by Jeremy Koren (aka Grey Ghost) with Co-Director/Cinematographer Nick Rieve and was claimed by Channel V as the ‘Ripe Clip Of The Week’ as well as ‘Indie Clip Of The Week’ on Rage. As a single, Float Away was cited by influential artist 360 as his personal pick for top 10 in the 2012 triple j Hottest 100.
Anything you could want to know about Seth’s personality is laid out in the album’s rhymes and turns of phrase, strewn across its head-nodding beats and bombastic choruses, right through to its pop culture references. This Was Tomorrow is a solid work of art that stands as both entertainment and culture… as songs you can switch your brain off and sing along to, or a window into the mind of a truly gifted artist.
