London based singer – songwriter, Amy Syed is set to release a new single on the 2nd of December 2016. If you haven’t heard her rich, honeyed tones before, check out ‘Lonely Love’, the haunting follow-up to the acclaimed debut and Record Of The Day ‘You Go To My Head’, which was co-written with Bruno Major and recorded in Wales over the Summer.

Beautiful, spaced-out and uplifting, this is 21st century dream pop at it’s very best, and sounds like nothing else around right now.
A highly respected and established session and backing singer for several prominent acts over the last few years, it’s only recently that Syed has emerged at the front of the stage to play a handful of successful shows in and around London.

Influenced by a diverse range of artists from Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald to Daft Punk, Robyn and Sebastian, Amy and her long-time collaborators Ali Thynne (MNEK, EKKAH) on drums and Royal Academy graduate, Peter Lee, on keyboards are now ready to share a very distinctive and unique sound to a larger and unsuspecting audience.

Currently in the studio putting the finishing touches to a new EP, the trio are set to announce live dates in the very near future.

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?
