Love & Other Battles

Through losing you a hundred times I found myself – and when you find me again I’ll be a hundred times the woman you left.

Everything I ever needed was inside of me. I deprived myself of the love that I created and feed it to your insatiable hunger. An appetite too selfish to satisfy. I felt empty but whenever you needed me to produce more of myself for you to waste – I did. Then one day I asked myself the unthinkable; what will happen if I decided to love myself the way I loved you?


Who, what, how?

Setso (22) is a singer/songwriter in Cape Town. The artist was born in Pretoria on 4 February 1997. Being born in the month of love certainly doesn’t make Setso a love expert, but it surely didn’t stop her from making an EP centred around the topic.

Not all her songs are about finding Prince Charming. In fact, most of them are about losing him but without the obvious devasting interpretation. This is not your mom’s old records or your little brother’s freshest mixtape. No, this is a rock/soul extended play record infused with the vocal techniques Setso picked-up during her time in a classical choir. If you ever wondered what rock and soul would sound like if he was a woman, Setso would be a great place to start.

The show includes a live band, impromptu dancing and possibly some oversharing. Nonetheless, I can guarantee that you’ll be looking forward to being heartbroken after you see what wonderful work can arise from the ashes of a messily ever after.


Allow Setso and The Band to serve you with music that talks to you and not at you.
