Sink announce a unique acoustic, instrumental sound with their debut album Ossicles.
Keeping improvisation at it’s core and rooted in diverse musical traditions, their sound blends spontaneous inspiration with crafted composition, using the distinct voices of the accordion, violin and soprano saxophone.
With their live performances including vocal and percussive elements, Sink work in a variety of musical contexts, from performing at concert venues and music festivals to creating original soundtracks to silent films, site-specific performances in unusual spaces, and collaborating with visual artists.
Influenced by Beethoven, Cage, Zorn and Leon’s dog Daisy, yet undefined by any genre, Sink pull visceral and extraordinary music out of thin air.
Sink are currently recording their second studio album.
