Serafina Steer's new LP 'The Moths Are Real' is the Rough Trade Shops Album of The Month. The Jarvis Cocker produced release is out on CD, LP and download on January 14th, 2013 on Stolen Recordings. To herald the album's release a launch show 'Serafina Steer and Special Guests' will take place on Thursday 24th January at St. Leonard's Church Shoreditch, where some of the album was recorded.
Previous albums 'Cheap Demo Bad Science' (2006) and 'Change Is Good, Change Is Good' (which Jarvis cited as his favourite album of 2010), firmly established Serafina as an emerging talent to watch, but this record sees her ideas developed and grown into something truly special. Serafina is accompanied on the album by Capitol K, Steve Mackey, Jarvis Cocker, The Boxettes, Polar Bear's Seb Rochford and The Flying Lizards' keyboard wizard David Cunningham. Recording took place at The Way Studios, Old Street, The Square in East London, Konk, Fish Factory and St Leonard's Church variously between December 2011 and June 2012. Unassuming, yet mesmerising, this album confirms the arrival of a singular talent, a breath-taking voice and an utterly unique lyricist.
The album is preceded by a single 'Night Before Mutiny', which is out now. Here are the show details and ticket link...
