Emerging East London based singer KAE SERA blends modern day electro-pop with sounds from the 50’s and 60’s to create something which is both unique yet familiar. Originally from Liverpool, the artist grew up in a city rich in musical heritage, exposed to the nostalgic soundscapes of the bands that made the city famous. These sounds subliminally fed her musical appetite, giving her music a vintage haze and maturity. With a fascination for literature and poetry, her songs provide a captivating, storytelling experience, pulling you into her world.
“The Moon” showcases KAE SERA’s thought process after receiving a late-night message from an ex-lover. The superlunary single personifies the moon holding it responsible for the confidence it gives people, to channel and reveal their emotions, confessing their truths in the glow of the moonlight. The songwriter shares, “It is definitely a heartbreak song for those who are seeking answers about post break up communication”.
The songwriter hopes the single encourages people to stay present and understand the past, explaining, “I hope it helps people accept the fact that they will never fully understand the reason why an ex contacts them, but know that you can get a sense of closure from recognising the patterns of messages playing out”.
Eerie, dreamy and undeniably alluring, “The Moon” has a beat that feels somewhat reminiscent of a muffled rock/garage flow giving a pumping heartbeat of emotion. This celestial track is laced with delicate vocals that shimmer throughout. “The Moon” feels subtly dark drawing in on the night-sky wonder, with twinkling synths and a flush of magic. Overall the minimal soundscape is complex in its understated layers, making for a gentle and mysterious aura.
