Just to put it in perspective, 2012 was a massive year for Seth Sentry… three high-rotation singles, an album debuting at #6 on the ARIA charts, triple j’s feature album of the week and Channel [V]’s Oz Artist Of The Year award… but seeing as though he got to kick off 2013 by driving a DeLorean, this is already the year to beat.
Featuring said time machine, a host of characters and some highly dubious acting performances from Seth, Mantra, DJ B-Two, and Grey Ghost, the clip to Seth’s latest single Dear Science has everything. Well, everything except hoverboards, as the fan-favourite song points out. Directed by Grey Ghost and Nick Rieve, Dear Science takes an adult revisitation of a childhood moment and asks the important scientific question, ‘Where’s my Hoverboard?’
After an exclusive premiere on Channel V, the official Dear Science video clip was been unleashed. And while scientists of the world get right on that (technically they have until 2015 to make Seth a hoverboard), Seth Sentry is gearing up for another big year, starting off with the 2013 Melbourne Big Day Out. Following on from last year’s heavy touring schedule and performances at festivals like Homebake, Fat As Butter, Sprung and the first Channel [V] Island Party, this year will be even busier than the last, starting things off with the monster summer anthem that is Dear Science.
Taken from Seth’s debut album This Was Tomorrow (released through his own label, High Score Records, and celebrated by Time Off Magazine as “a landmark Australian hip hop record”) Dear Science follows in the tradition of Seth’s previous singles Float Away, My Scene and The Waitress Song with light-hearted wordplay and big sing-along chorus.
Produced by Trials (Funkoars, Drapht), Dear Science is exactly the kind of song that helped make 2012 so successful for Seth, and is the perfect way to get this summer cranking. Dear Science is the third single taken from This Was Tomorrow, out now through High Score Records.
