Self Esteem, the alias of former Slow Club-er, Rebecca Lucy Taylor, plays Cambridge for this first time this month. Tickets for her Portland Arms show on the 22nd are available here.
Self Esteem recently unveiled the video for her new single Rollout and announces a run of UK shows for November and December. The video is directed by long time friend and collaborator Piers Dennis, and features Self Esteem AKA Rebecca Lucy Taylor front and centre, and indulging her love for choreography and the art of the pop promo.
Rollout is Self Esteems’s third single, following Wrestling, released earlier this summer, and last year’s critically acclaimed debut Your Wife. For a long time Rebecca was dividing her attention, working on painting and prints, and video, as Self Esteem, whilst the day job was writing and performing as one half of Slow Club, but now the music and the day job is Self Esteem too, and Rebecca is revelling in it. Witty, intelligent, extrovert and piercingly insightful, Rebecca no longer has to worry about anybody else’s opinion or treading on any toes, and can be wholly, wonderfully herself.
