Hot on the heels of Bjork and her three dimensional Virtual Reality show at somerset House comes Erika, who is launching her new 3DVR app at Lights of Soho on Monday the 15th August. Following on from shows in Europe and the UK, this exciting app will feature songs and artwork by Erika and her collaborators and friends. The launch will also herald a new single Kryptonite which will be released on the 22nd of August on Imma Sounds. Kryptonite is also lifted from Erika’s debut EP Onna. One of five tracks including the moving Fly Away Bird and a remix of Pop by Hatcham Social, and of course, the first single form the EP, Warrior. Check out the empowering video below.

Erika’s musical creativity speaks of a life absorbing influences from London and Japan. Crafting beautiful pop, Erika can switch from haunting to joyous and from hope to despair from verse to verse. She toured with MIKA as his backing singer, provided backing vocals and keyboards for Skunk Anansie on their recent European Tour and also recently recorded a guest vocal on two tracks with #1 UK artist, Bastille and Ella Eyre.
Erika will follow the London date with an appearance and the presentation of her co-insensory workshop at Always The Sun Festival in Guildford on the 29th of August 2016.

LIVE DATES:
AUG 15TH LIGHTS OF SOHO, LONDON
AUG 29TH ALWAYS THE SUN FESTIVAL, GUILDFORD

Cocktails at the General Store

SEEN is tireless in her cocktail research, and very much enjoyed travelling to Highbury last week to try The General Store’s new summer cocktail menu and to check out the new interior. She was delighted to sample a Honey Mimosa, very sweet and fruity and just the ticket after a hot journey. It was, as its name suggests, a Mimosa with just a touch of honey.

Canaletto: A Drawing Workshop with Alexandra Blum

SEEN has long been an admirer of Alexandra Blum’s liminal and apocalyptic renderings of London’s urban spaces, in which the capital seems ever-changing. It is the artist’s job to capture not only space but the passage of time itself.

Love Hunt at the British Museum

SEEN had the pleasure (pun intended) of being invited to a ‘Love Hunt’ at the British Museum. The museum, founded in 1753, is committed to preserving art, culture and history, and has collected around 8 million objects. These artefacts come from every corner of the world, revealing a fragment of many significant moments in time, from Mesopotamia to the Vikings; from the Inuits to the Indians. So, when one embarks on a visit to the world famous British Museum, where does one start?
