Serrotone recently performed with some of SA’s finest acts on their Western Cape tour, sharing the stage with Prime Circle and Wonderboom in Plettenburg Bay, and then Freshly Ground at the Inverroche Summer Series in Stilbaai.
Two of their singles, which have already gained popularity at their live performances, are due for release within the month, with filming of their first music video to follow.
