It’s midweek and to stave off the Wednesday lull you need to check out Sentia‘s brand new ripping track Hydroflow. Melbourne born and bred, Sentia are at the forefront of emerging progressive rock coming out of Australia and if this, the first single from their debut E.P. Origins, is anything to go by great things await!
ORIGINS releases on August 12. Check out Hydroflow and more on the band below including local tour dates!
Written in Hong Kong, lyrically Hydroflow deals with feelings of insecurity, vulnerability and forbidden desire amidst the breakdown of a relationship all while being enchanted by a strange, foreign land.
The track delivers on these themes through the use of wet guitars, hypnotics percussion and reversed vocals building to an explosion of noise and passion three quarters through the song.
“Hydroflow came about from one of our many jams, one of those loose ideas that begin as a blur but eventually start to make sense. We knew this would be a song that was a little more delicate, ” said self-taught drummer, Chris.
Earlier this year, in February, the group released self-produced single Feast of Fools nabbing the number nine spot on the triple j Unearthed Charts.
Further back Sentia’s 2013 three track release ‘Satallites’ landed them in triple j Unearthed’s Top 10 Rock Charts.
Formed in 2011 with guitarist Jason King, bassist Daniel King and vocalist Amos Phillips, the band has since expanded in scope and arrangement introducing Chris Bodin on drums and Pete Kyvelos on keys in 2014.
Drawing from a wide range of influences across different members including Tool, Circa Survive, Jeff Buckley, Incubus, Radiohead, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and The Roots, the band can be described as a heavy take on The Temper Trap.
The group has also played alongside and supported legends of the heavy music industry Jericco, Sounds of Sirus, Engine 37 and Gay Paris.
Sentia will also be bringing their unique ambient prog-rock sound to Habitat HQ on Friday August 12, Music Man in Bendigo on Friday September 9 and The Worldsend Hotel in Adelaide Saturday September 17.
