Clang Sayne was formed by Laura Hyland in London in 2008 to fuse myriad influences spanning folk song, sound art and literature into what she describes as songscape. Reviewers have dubbed it an “an uncategorizable approach to songcraft” and “exhilarating in its refusal to conform” as atmospheric and spellbinding soundworlds are created, moving seamlessly between intricate arrangement and playful improvisation. The presence of vocals from all four makes for a sumptuous, vivid and often surprisingly big sound.
Currently based in Ireland, the group’s recent release The Round Soul of the World came out in March 2017 receiving glowing reviews with a track even featuring on The Wire Magazine’ Tapper CD compilation.
