Clang Sayne

July 25, 2018 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Clang Sayne are an experimental folk quartet (4 voices,guitar,bass clarinet,cello, drums) exploring the boundary between song and sound improvisation. Our music has been described as “exhilarating in its refusal to conform” (The Wire Magazine) , and “showing an uncategorisable approach to song craft” (Boomkat). We released our 2nd album, ‘The Round Soul of the World’ in Spring 2017, a track from which appeared on the April 2017 edition of the Wire’s Tapper cd series. You can hear the album in full here:
