Siobhan Cotchin defies hateful ignorance in fierce new single ‘If God Is A Man’

Siobhan Cotchin has returned, fierce and empowered, with new single ‘If God Is A Man’.

Her latest single is fueled with opposition to the discrimination and hatred she has witnessed across the globe, including the banning of abortion in the United States, following the overturning of Roe v. Wade, as well as the attack on LGBTQIA rights across North America.

This political voice hears Cotchin move away from topics of highways & romance, towards a song that takes a stance for what she firmly believes. As powerful as it is, Siobhan remains warm & tender, encouraging all to celebrate who they are & to not change for anyone.

‘If God Is A Man’ finds Siobhan Cotchin reaching further afield for the first time, not only lyrically, but also in composition, working with Dylan Carmen from The Money War, as well as Paige Valentine to piece together the song – her first track written in a co-writing session.

After sitting on it for over a year, she showed it to her band, who clicked with it straight away. They would push onwards with producer Sam Ford (Abbe May, Birds of Tokyo, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets) of Tone City Records who would engineer & produce the track. 

Siobhan Cotchin’s ‘twang’ is as prevalent as ever, with ‘If God Is A Man’ splitting the delicate balance of rock-chick inspiration, with Siobhan’s renowned pop-rock proclivities.

“‘If God is A Man’ is a song with a super strong message, and one that is important to me. It’s about rejecting forced conformity and celebrating who you are and not wanting to change for other people. It’s also a song about losing faith and hope, and I feel as though that’s extremely relevant to the times we are living in. I want to be on the right side of history and stand up for what I believe in.

I’m grateful to have a platform like music to spread this message. There’s no room for hatred and discrimination at my shows, and I want people of all walks of life to know that my music is a safe place and they are heard.” Siobhan Cotchin 

Featuring profoundly acclaimed singles ‘How Does It Feel’ ‘When The Curtains Close’Siobhan Cotchin is today announcing her sophomore EP ‘Miss Reckless’. Alongside ‘If God Was A Man’, the third single off of the release, ‘Cross The Line’ ‘Miss Reckless’ combine to collate a 5-track release that marks the embodiment of WA’s hardest-working songwriter.

Only in her early 20’s, Siobhan Cotchin has a dazzling prose that tells stories far beyond her years. Heartbreak, betrayal, loss, anger & vulnerability all feature heaving on the ‘Miss Reckless’Cotchin beginning to etch a name for herself in Australian songwriting as a troubadour of the whole spectrum of human emotion.

Having rounded out 2022 with 5 x WAM award nominations, picking up 3 of those, alongside BIGSOUNDBluesfest Laneway Festival appearances, with a debut headline tour across WA and Australia’s east coast, Siobhan Cotchin also grabbed a flurry of support in the back-half of 2022, with breakout singles ‘Fill My Cup’ ‘How Does It Feel’.

‘If God Is A Man’ marks a new direction for Siobhan’s lyrical narrative, one with fire & passion, blended with ‘When The Curtains Close’ ‘How Does It Feel’, alongside the further tracks on ‘Miss Reckless’, she finds herself continuing to grow – emerging as one of Australia’s most prolific and well-rounded songwriters.
