Serafina Steer’s new Rough Trade Shops Album of The Month and Jarvis Cocker produced album ‘The Moths Are Real’ is out on CD, LP and download on January 14th, 2013 on Stolen Recordings.
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.
