'The harp is a lonely instrument', says Serafina Steer (who has been playing the instrument since primary school) in an article in today's Observer.
The 30-year-old singer-songwriter has just released her second album, The Moths are Real, and I am enjoying it immensely. It's a slice of sublime chamber pop - rich, pensive, bright and dark. I love the sound of the pulsing church organ on The Removal Man, the electronics on Disco Compilation, and Steer's crystal clear, almost austere-sounding vocals. I am completely hooked. Listen, immediately.
