Serene (UK) are an English alternative band from London. The band’s ambition to write music with attitude and soul has been influenced by the songwriting of Patti Smith and John Lennon, the experimentalism of David Bowie and Radiohead and the youthful attitude and ambition of The Clash, early U2, Marc Bolan or The Doors.
The spirit and social conscience of punk and post-punk experimentalism are much part of their musical DNA as are the pop sensibilities of 60′s Mod, 70′s New Wave and the wide-eyed romanticism of Glam-Rock.
In January 2011 Serene released their debut single, Arnold Layne, a cover of the Pink Floyd classic with the song Shiny Shiny as bonus track. The follow-up release, Shooting Star arrives on August 6th 2012.
All Serene (UK) releases are available as download on iTunes, Spotify and as limited edition CD.
