Song of the Day: Hail Mary – HI SIENNA

Manchester based, animated four-piece, HI SIENNA, are leaning toward a unique sound in 2021 with latest single, ‘Hail Mary’, a juxtaposition between an angelic gospel-sounding melody and the raunchy exploration of lust and desire through it’s lyrics (think INXS). It’s an epic combination of twangy guitars, stadium-filling strings and harmonies that gift an uplifting, euphoric sound to the ear.

Formed in 2019, they bounced onto the scene, playing their first show as a headline at Manchester’s Deaf Institute, supported Scouting For Girls at the O2 Ritz and released their debut single, ‘Favourite’ Thing, in November that year. Their following releases have continued to be supported by the likes of Xs Manchester (record of the week), Amazing Radio (record of the week), BBC Introducing and even some famous faces such as Robert Carlyle and the legendary Dave Haslam!

These guys are worth a listen…check out ‘Hail Mary’ below…
