When Seth Sentry’s first album, This Was Tomorrow, debuted at #6 on the ARIA charts, Seth was a bright young hopeful… a talented up-and-comer. Now, only a few years down the track, Seth is regarded as one of Australia’s premier rappers, with an iconic voice as warm and familiar as a hug from an old mate.
But, to put the question bluntly, what’s he done lately?
Well, besides touring and touring and touring, Seth’s been writing and recording his next album, and, much to the delight of fans, the first taste is ready. Characteristically nostalgic, poignant and humorous; first single Run is Seth at his best, as he explores his childhood as a bored kid in a small town, making fun however ya can. Shoplifting chocolates, skating ledges and sifting weed flakes out of bong water. Days when, if the cops chased you, you’d just run.
Last week we sent along photographer MattJFX to the Perth leg of Seth Sentry’s National Run Tour. MattJFX captured some of the nights action with amazing results, documenting them in the gallery above.
