Merakindie is very proud to present an 8-date Clang Sayne Autumn Tour around the country later this month, during which they will hijack the ears of all and sundry with renditions from their March album release, 'The Round Soul of the World'.
Currently based in Ireland, the group features Laura on voice and guitar, Judith Ring on voice and cello, Matthew Jacobson on drums and voice, and Carolyn Goodwin on bass clarinet and voice.
They independently released their new album, 'The Round Soul of the World' in March 2017.
Clang Sayne was formed by Laura Hyland in London in 2008 to fuse myriad influences spanning folk song, sound art and literature into a soundworld she describes as 'songscape'. Reviewers have dubbed it an "an uncategorizable approach to songcraft" and "exhilarating in its refusal to conform".
Former London incarnation of the group featured Peter Marsh on double bass, James O Sullivan on electric guitar and Matthew Fisher on drums, with whom Laura recorded and independently released the debut Clang Sayne album, 'Winterlands' in September 2009. The single, 'A Death and a Vision' featured on the Wire Magazine's Tapper cd in October 2009, and the album was subsequently re-released on Forwind Records in April 2010 to international critical acclaim.
"[Winterlands] revealed the spellbinding poetic lyricism of Hyland’s songwriting, together with the group’s innate ability to channel their diverse influences (jazz, folk, sound art, traditional) into their own distinct sound. Their captivating sound and thrilling lyricism continue to expand and flourish on the band’s follow-up, “The Round Soul Of The World”. Released in March of this year, the group’s second album is a stunning achievement in distilling myriad themes (chiefly those of mortality, death and love) in such a quietly breathtaking and poignantly moving way.
