"Requiem" (Wire excerpt)

from The Round Soul Of The World

Founded by vocalist, guitarist and composer Laura Hyland in London in 2008 and currently based in Ireland, Clang Sayne explore the boundary between song and sound improvisation. In addition to Hyland, their line-up features Judith Ring on voice/cello, Carolyn Goodwin on woodwinds/voice and Matthew Jacobson on drums/voice. Wire contributor Clive Bell described 2009’s Winterlands as “exhilarating in its refusal to conform”. They’re about to tour their second album The Round Soul Of The World through Europe and the US.
