EP review: SINKA – F.W.Y.K.

SINKA - Cause Effect

Facebook [Release date 17.04.20]

Sinka are a three piece band hailing from Watford, consisting of vocalist/guitarist Shaun Sewell-Sears, bassist Matt Smith and drummer Jack Wright. Since starting out in 2017 they have played headlining shows in London and Camden Rocks festival. In addition Amazon Music hailed Sinka as #3 on their ‘Best New Bands 2019’ playlist.

Are Sinka worth the hype on this their debut EP? Oh yes and then some. They have plenty in their musical bag judging by these four songs. From the Muse/Feeder like ‘A Place You’ve Never Known’ (the production and musical arrangements are top notch) through to the raucous guitar riot on ‘See What I See’, Sinka have the songs and melodies to see them become more known. When the live scene returns Sinka will be one on the ‘to see’ lists for many I am sure.

Grab a listen to this EP and get in early on a band surely destined for bigger things… ****
