Good news for all you Static Caravan buffs out there, we've got a newy in from Harp plucking Serafina Steer. Those of you familiar with S.S will know she has a mysterious and sensual vocal delivery as well as kick ass Harp playing skills. Often compared with Joanna Newsom, Steer's music is not quite as challenging or 'out there' but her soothing approach and straight forward songwriting style is certainly commendable. Assisted here by Capitol K and Benga whose production skills lift this record out of folk obscurity encouraging the use of analogue keyboards and drum machines to keep things fresh and inviting. On Occasions this sounds a little like Pinback or American Analogue Set at their most relaxed but elsewhere the music takes on a life of it's own, drifting on some mystical plane.
10/10 James Cox Customer review, 20th April 2010
I am a big fan Serafina Steer. Her music is similar to Virginia Astley/Kate Bush, ethereal, while her lyrics are firmly rooted in terra firma and the mundane. The first song is about a boring party, for instance. Weird and wonderful.
