Self Esteem today announces a UK tour for March 2019, taking in eleven shows including a stop at London’s Village Underground. See overleaf for the full list of dates; tickets go on general sale at 10am on Monday 10 December, with exclusive pre-sale tickets available via DICE now.
Today also marks the release of Self Esteem’s mash up of The Walkmen’s ‘The Rat’ and Lumidee’s ‘Never Leave You (Uh Oooh, Uh Oooh)’. The track was originally recorded at the iconic Maida Vale Studios in London and aired on Jack Saunders’ BBC Radio 1 show as part of her BBC Live Session.

The announcement follows a run of shows in November this year that also saw her perform as part of The Great Escape’s First 50, spotlighting acts performing at the festival in May 2019, and the release of her single ‘Rollout’, which is available to stream and download now via Fiction Records.

Self Esteem is Rebecca Lucy Taylor. ‘Rollout’ is Self Esteem’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.
