It’s just going to be too much. Much too much. I was so excited about I thought it was meant to be kept a secret.

Thank you to everyone that came to see us along the way. These gigs have been real joy. Back to writing (I have been writing some REALLY dreadful songs, honestly. I am hoping it’s a passing phase. OR the sunshine has temporarily stunned my mind) and pottering around. We’re doing a bunch of festivals ( Cloudspotting, End Of the Road, Latitude, Festival No.6, How the Light Gets in/Hay-on-Wye, Secret Garden, Bush Stock) so hopefully some of you might be going to those too.

please take time to vote for at least one of us because this is such a big deal to anyone in my boat…. Rebel playlist for 6 music
Serafina Steer ‘Disco Compilation’ 7″, video and tour…
I don’t know when we’re meant to announce who is supporting us on tour but I KNOW and it’s EXCITING.
And Disco Compilation was played by Nemone on 6 music this morning so you can listen to the show if you like
We have just nearly finished a video with Rohan Thomas for Disco Compilation, or rather he has nearly finished making it. Featuring a dance routine that my friend Ben Polhill says will be a sensation.
Having pupsied around in the cold for a month since the launch ( well I have actually read Infinite Jest actually, i think) I am well lookingforward to April’s gigs. I’ve been practicing singing curious scales that I will never pull off and singing along to Prince/Whitney Houston. SO. Hold that breath.
