Indie rockers on the rise, Melbourne’s Sienna Wild have today announced their exhilarating, gritty new single You Wouldn’t Know, a track that places the listener in a strange and unsettling situation between two lovers, out today, December 2. The group have also released a killer lyric video to accompany the track. To celebrate all things You Wouldn’t Know, Sienna Wild is heading out on a national tour in January 2020, kicking off at Frankie’s Pizza in Sydney on January 2, then moving through Adelaide, Brisbane, and wrapping up with a hometown show in Melbourne at The Tote on January 31.
For fans of Catfish and the Bottlemen, Eskimo Joe and Arctic Monkeys, You Wouldn’t Know is an absolute firecracker of a song. Soaring guitars reign, while searing, affecting vocals ride atop the arrangement with strength and power. You Wouldn’t Know is pretty much everything a modern rock fan could want in a track, and is guaranteed to get you pushing your way through the dancefloor to bust a move. Speaking on the interesting inspiration behind the track, bass guitarist and vocalist Louis Goutos enthuses, “The sentiment behind the single came from me setting myself a challenge of writing from the perspective of a third party in a break up. Up to that point, our writing had been about power within a relationship, whether it be during good times or bad. This time, I wanted to write a song about an outsider who becomes involved in a break up, as opposed to the two protagonists telling the story. It is essentially about a girl telling her boyfriend’s best friend she’s going to leave her man, but the boyfriend is too oblivious to realise. Hence, he ‘wouldn’t know’, but the friend does!”
Sienna Wild are thrilled to be taking You Wouldn’t Know on the road, and it’s pretty clear why once you hit play on this track – it’s definitely one for a hot, sweaty, summer gig. Giving fans a taste of what to expect from their 2020 tour, Louis says, “Fans can expect a tight rock performance full of swirling guitars, crashing choruses and compelling dynamics. You’ll see a band who have conviction and believe what they say, and mean what they do. A good time for all!”
As fans of music from the very beginning, Sienna Wild are a passionate group of young musicians who are excited to share this stunning new track with the world. Reflecting on the formation of Sienna Wild, Louis says, “Fortunately, I came from a musical family and there were always instruments around so I just started playing things and learning by listening. I started off with the piano, then the drums, until finally the bass called, and that was when I found my voice (so to speak). I found like-minded musicians and spirits in the guys from Sienna Wild, and haven’t looked back ever since. Also none of us are opposed to a few beers and a good time… I reckon listeners should get around Sienna Wild now, before someone else gets there first! You might just be the one to say ‘I told you so’”
Sienna Wild’s best meals to eat on tour….
- Fruit – I know this sounds weird, but don’t get sucked into the trap of just eating junk food on tour! You end up drinking a lot, and that usually means you want to eat a lot, but there is nothing worse than going on stage with full guts. Fruit is light, tastes good and is good for all your…systems.
2. Steak – This is a staple (unless you are a vegetarian, then find an alternative that works for you). Pre or Post – gig, steak gives whatever you need to play, or replenish what you have lost. I sound like a weird nutritionist, but it’s good for everything. Lean, light and lightning quick to digest. Believe me!
3. Home cooked meal(s) – Whenever you can, try and get something home cooked. You are always on the road, sleeping on couches, in vans, in trees, on the beach, etc it is hard to get good food. Whenever you can, cook it yourself or find someone with a good home and a good heart to cook it for you. One of these a week on tour will feel like it makes up for the rest of the random stuff you put in your body when you are on the road.
4. The classic chicken parma – We’ve done quite a few regional Victorian shows in our time, and nothing beats a good old fashioned pub parma. It’s become a bit of an unspoken tradition that the crew all sits down to a parma before a pub gig. We can verify that there are good parmas to be found in Echuca, Bendigo, Ballarat, Mirboo North, Rosebud, Warragul … and the list goes on! If we’ve played your regional town, we’ve eaten a parma there too.
5. The morning-after-the-show eggs breakky – Nothing beats sitting down with your trusty (and usually dusty) bandmates to an eggs breakfast to clear out the cobwebs the morning after the show. Usually accompanied by a minimum of two coffees per person. Everyone has their coffee a different way. We’ve been on some decent treks around unfamiliar towns in search of the perfect sit down and eat-in location. By perfect, I mean anywhere that’s open with those kind of items on the menu.
