' SWITCH' - The brand new single by Welsh singer-songwriter SERA (Sera Zyborska).Once again working with acclaimed producer Andi Crutwell-Jones, plus the notable contribution of Nico CJ on violin and Len Whitehead on Electric guitar makes a full-sounding, statement of a song that again blends all SERA's favourite parts of Americana, folk and pop with her storytelling and folklore album theme.
'SWITCH' is a bolt out of the dark, a harsh awakening. Empowerment.
Her album songs are all drawn from folklore and SWITCH is no different, drawing inspiration from Steam-punk, Frankenstein and the 'Freak Lab-accident' trope of the comic superhero.
SERA's music is rooted in folk, Americana, singer-songwriter, with this track taking a further leap into energetic pop.
Praise for 'Switch'
'Switch' has been recently added to BBC Radio Wales A-List Playlist.
'Switch is full of dark magic, bold and energetic, Bewitching and full of surprises'

A pianist, guitar player and a singer-songwriter, SERA (Sera Zyborska) has been writing, recording and performing in both English and Welsh for a while. Over the last couple of years, SERA has spent time in the studio working and writing with producer Andi Crutwell-Jones, looking at the real stories she wanted to tell with a sound that matched her ambition. The result is a collection of songs inspired by anxiety, love, nostalgia, ancestry, witches, ships and lost worlds. It's all there.
Having grown up in Caernarfon, North Wales, a place steeped in history, culture, between the Snowdonia Mountains and the Irish sea, you could understand her love of folklore and how landscape is a big source of inspiration behind her music.
SERA was selected as a BBC Horizons artist for 2019-2020, and played a live session in the legendary BBC Maida Vale Studios . SERA is also a part of new Americana band TAPESTRI with Lowri Evans and folk duo EVE & SERA with Eve Goodman. She has a band in Cardiff as well as a function band in North Wales called SUSPECTS

'SERA has been weaving together stories with an Americana rootsy twang which has so far earned her comparisons to Amanda Palmer and Joni Mitchell'. - PRS for Music
