Boorloo/ Perth-based songstress Siobhan Cotchin has had a largely successful year, with the release of her debut EP Highways and Heartbreak (which she talks more on here), showcasing at BIGSOUND with three performances, recently receiving five nominations at the West Australian Music (WAM) Awards - taking home three of them for Best Country Act, Best EP & Best Vocalist, closing out 2022 strong with the release of her latest single How Does It Feel alongside the announcement of a nation wide tour for Dec to Jan. 

Taking influence from the likes of Smashing Pumpkins and Hole, How Does It Feel is a more rock-infused take on her usual alt-country pop sound, Siobhan sharing “I had the lyrics for a while and wrote the melody and chords after watching a Baby Animals documentary. I was so inspired by Suzie DeMarchi and her powerful vocals and just pure rock n roll energy, so I wanted to recreate it in my own way.”

Recorded and released by Tone City Recordings producer and label owner Sam Ford (Abbe May, Birds of Tokyo, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets), it’s a track that is not only evocative and powerful, but shines a light on Siobhan Cotchin’s versatility as as singer and songwriter. 

Kicking off her tour next Thursday in Naarm/ Melbourne, be sure to take a peep at Siobhan Cotchin’s upcoming shows as you press play on How Does It Feel below.
