Merakindie is very proud to present an 8-date Clang Sayne 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'.
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".
They independently released their new album, 'The Round Soul of the World' in March 2017. A live version of the song 'Blackbird' from the album can be found here.

Sunday 8th: Wexford Arts Centre featuring recent collaboration with the incredibly talented David Begley Artist. David has made a series of seven prints in response to the seven pieces on CS album. You can check out his work at www.davidbegley.com . The prints will be exhibited alongside the lyrics from each of the songs, and will be projected lifesize behind as they play.
"[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.
