London has arguably the best music scene around, with thousands of talented musicians emerging every day, most of which are unsigned acts waiting for their big break.
Unsigned Friday brings you the very best unsigned music artists from around the capital, as well as giving these acts a platform to promote their music.
This week, getwestlondon 's Emily Chudy caught up with alternative indie rock musician Sere Trouble.
The musician is a solo artist who has just released her new EP Burning Milk, which will be released with 100 vinyl copies.
'I got no style'
Sere said: "I'm alt rock, indie-rock, Bjork-goes-indie, I sound like the Breeders, Sonic Youth, Cat Power, 'a glossy indie rock swagger with a punk DIY punch'. These are all things I've been told (sometimes by drunken people.)
"I got no style, I take my time, I am in motion. Biggest influences are Kerouac and the Beat poets: real, experiencing everything feeling it in your bones and critical of materialistic consumerism.
"Amongst my favourite artists are Blur, Patti Smith, St. Vincent, Metric, Santigold, Pavement, Regina Spektor, Sylvan Esso."
Sere Trouble started playing music as a child, first learning the violin, before moving onto the saxophone, guitar and vocals.
Sere said: "I started playing music when I was very young, messing around with an electric organ we had at home. My parents started me playing the violin when I was 6, that lasted till I was a teenager.
"Then I picked up the sax and the guitar. Now I'm guitar, voice and production."
Sere said: "Burning Milk 100% DIY as I wrote the songs, recorded and produced them by myself. It contains five songs: 'Headphones', 'Drink Myself To The Ground', 'In The Sun', 'Inertia', and 'What's In Your Head?'.
"For the first time ever I have printed vinyls too so it's really exciting for me!
"Reactions have been good: radio plays, good blog reviews and enthusiastic comments from friends and fans."
Sere Trouble will be performing gigs and concerts around London this summer, and is thinking about working on a new album going forward.
Sere said: "I have a new project in mind and I think it's going to be an album. For the time being though I am super excited with the prospect of gigging all over the place and focus solely on that.
"I don't think about the future an awful lot BUT I know I want to be playing at big festivals."
AltDialogue said of Sere Trouble's new EP: "There is a thrilling sound and ethic at the heart of Sere Trouble, think a glossy indie rock swagger with a punk DIY punch and you'll be on the right course.
"It's as if Bloc Party and Cold War Kids merged with Great Cynics. Lead single and EP opener 'Headphones' is a real banger."
