Pledge Music [Release date 27.05.16]
Scottish band Sinerins bring a new twist to the folk /cross over genre with their eponymous debut release. I guess the first touchstone that sprang to mind was the shortly lived band Celtus who were once described as Pink Floyd meets Clannad meets Enigma. But Sinderins bring a whole lot more to the party.
Initially named AMWWF after band members, Stevie Anderson, Gavin McGinty, David Webster, Robbie Ward, and Billy Fisher, and, later AMWF after bass player Robbie Ward left to be replaced by Tom Barbour — the five piece decided a more to plump for a more user friendly name. Sinderins a five-way junction in the West End of their home town of Dundee, seemingly befitted the divergence of the band’s collective talents.
Recorded with Grammy award-winning producer Matt Lawrence, each song – delivered with the some of the best lead and harmony vocals you’ll hear thus year, may be rooted in folk and designed to work on a solo acoustic at a Folk Club, but on record is embellished with flawless facets of traditional, soul, pop and rock that would not be out of place in the West End of London.
Employing instrumentation including bouzouki, mandolin, harmonium, double bass, auto harp and percussion, with four members regularly taking on lead vocals, the result is something very dramatic, and special.
Scotland distils the finest malt whiskeys in the world. They’re to be sipped and savoured. So are Sinderins. If there’s any justice in the world, they’ll be the next Mumford And Sons. ****
