Clang Sayne are an experimental folk quartet (four voices, guitar, bass clarinet, cello, drums) exploring the boundary between song and sound improvisation. Their music has been described as "exhilarating in its refusal to conform" (The Wire Magazine) , and "showing an uncategorisable approach to song craft" (Boomkat). They released their second 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.
