Sera — Self Titled

Here’s a name not many people have heard. She stands in the precarious position held just at the shoreline of the bubblegum trap pit of female pop. But despite obvious talent, I would not be surprised if she never crosses over from struggling indie artist to a household name. But I could be wrong. I kind of hope I am, for Sera’s sake. She’s a gentle but firm, dread-headed singer with an older style of pop harmony and jazzy keyboards. She looks for answers to simple questions in her songs, trading in explorations of the idea of true love for explanations of the actions and gestures that people who say they’re in love make everyday. Her voice pools and ripples through the keyboard pop.
