Just a few years ago, the three women were traveling through Europe as street musicians together with their fraternal rhythm section. Their first studio song ‘Take To The Skies’ did not only bring them hundreds of thousands of clicks online in 2015, but the newcomers also won the pop award in Basel (Basler Pop-Preis) in the same year. Even outside their hometown, people started scrambling to get the folk quintet with cellos, guitar, double bass and cajon. The streets that used to be Serafy’s stage turned into their path to clubs and festivals all over Europe.
Serafyn has grown musically. The drums have upstaged the Busker-cajon almost entirely. And together with Pola Roy of the band Wir sind Helden in the studio in Berlin, they set new accents like the bar play and the swirling twang bass in the hypnotic, almost gloomily throbbing title song ‘Foam’.
Their delicately stirring folk sound clearly tared and free of kitsch and clutter. The ten songs offer space for listening and drifting up until the point when yet another catchy part of the lyrics appears and one immediately wants to join the choir: “We’re all in, in we are” – just like Serafyn reiterate like a mantra in ‘Morning Tea’. Yes, we are.
In spring 2017 the band will be touring through Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The live dates can be found on their site: http://www.serafyn.ch
