With inspiration drawn from as far afield as the cobwebbed trees and gospel choirs of family in the Deep South, and as close as the sex shops and speakeasies of Soho, SERAPHINA serves straight-up nocturnal pop.
A born-and-bred Londoner, her songs are blues-flecked, soulful psalms to the night, weaving desire, heartbreak and anarchy with hymnal harmonies, honeyed vocals and soaring howls.
The 2017 release of debut EP ‘Altar’ was met with critical acclaim, premiering on The 405 with comparisons to Bat For Lashes, London Grammar and Elliot Smith. Follow-up single ‘Mistress Mayhem’ was dubbed ‘subtle and sophisticated’ by CMU and garnered plays on Hoxton Radio, Shoreditch Radio and FUBAR. SERAPHINA’s live shows promise powerful yet haunting vocals set to brooding tremolo guitar, distorted bass & Motown-inspired rhythms for raw, blues-infused performances. 
When she's not creating pop noir hymns, SERAPHINA is 1/4 of pop folk girlband TRILLS, who's songs have soundtracked trailers for Suffragette, Pete's Dragon, The Missing, Outlander and Netflix's Wormwood, as well as being chosen for the 2017 UEFA Champion's League Final closing song.
