At long last, the Edinburgh release of our debut album ‘Ossicles’ is upon us

Taking over the top floor of the recently opened Biscuit Factory in Leith, SiNK will be playing music developed from improvisations on our new album, along with old favourites and some brand new songs.

We’ve also invited our good friends Kate Young, Graeme Miller, Sven Werner and Isaac Jackson to support.

Friday 27th November | 7.30pm
The Biscuit Factory
4-6 Anderson Place
£5 on the door – CDs and vinyl sold at special launch price

Let us know you’re coming and invite friends on the Facebook event

More about the night:

Combining virtuosic fiddle playing with electronics and haunting vocals, Kate Young takes traditional music and spins it into a universe entirely of her own making.


Graeme Miller (Cracks in the Concrete) and Sven Werner (Tales of Magical Realism) will create an experimental, ever-evolving, pulsing acoustic sound piece using a pyramid of piano harps, horsehair loops and beaters.


Isaac Jackson sees sounds. Responsible for the syn-aesthetic sound painting appearing on our poster, Isaac will be presenting work from his ongoing collaboration with SiNK. Translating sounds from the Ossicles album into his own visual language, a pilot animation will be premiered on the night.



Live Video

Here’s a video of us performing Paris Metro in the beautiful library of the Mining Institute in Newcastle earlier this year. We’ll be playing there again this Thursday 9th October, supporting Kate in the Kettle.
