Approved: Seraphina

Seraphina

Following on from the release of her debut EP, ‘Altar’, last year, Seraphina returns with new single ‘Mistress Mayhem’. Further developing her subtle and sophisticated, heavily gospel influenced sound, it finds a power in simplicity.

“I have a mish-mash of influences”, she says of her music. “I’m drawn to old gospel and the history of spiritual music and blues in the deep south, but I grew up in London listening to guitar music and Motown. I love music that is visceral and evocative whatever the genre, [and artists who] have this amazing ability to create worlds within their music you can’t help but get lost in”.

‘Mistress Mayhem’ is built largely on a piano line and Seraphina’s voice, with other lightly applied elements adding extra texture as it progresses. She’s an artist who has found a sound and still has an exciting amount of exploring to do within it.
