Hello there!

I was planning to keep this blog on a regular basis; however, nothing interesting was happening that seemed entirely blog-worthy. I have spent the last year working, writing songs, playing shows, collecting some more synthesizers, and sewing little instruments.

I also got to play at the Opera House with a bunch of legends for Nick Zinner’s 41 strings (IIII) and went to Germany and wrote another song in my mother tongue. Keeping busy! (some might say – over-committing). BUT NOW I have officially started recording my second album! I have spent the last two weeks in Melbourne working with my brother Mirko on songs, recording drums, bass, and guitar until our fingers (almost) bled. Here are some photos:

Very excited to have real drums on the album. Also very excited that Mirko is playing them.

Seja and synthesizers

Mirko playing some bass

Seja plays electric

Seja plays acoustic – note cross-legged guitar stance and scrutinising guitar face is the same in each photo.

Fingers after a week of playing guitar. ouch!

MIDI miasma

Then Ben Ely played some bass on the album and it was amazing.

More photos to come soon. We have lots more work to do but I am very much looking forward to sharing it with you all soon!

Tour Diary 7

After 24 shows, 160 little felt synthesizer broaches & magnets sold, more than 36 games of Words With Friends, probably hundreds of naughty words on stage, and many good times, we made it back home safe and sound, slightly exhausted, but feeling optimistic.

It was pretty sad saying goodbye to everyone in Perth after 3 incredibly memorable shows at The Astor. A beautiful venue and best band room ever!! It’s a cinema!!

The last show of the tour involved many little special moments: song dedications, special guests (see Ben Fletcher playing Framed You In Fiction with us below)

Presents left on stage and work stations (We made these for the band and crew)

and a grand finale of us all crowding around the piano in the final encore, in a Von Trapp family-esque fashion, singing Xanadu together.


What a lovely tour. Thank you Sarah and band and crew!! And thank you so much to all the kind people who came to the shows early to see us play. We had the best time!
