I spent a good portion of Sunday afternoon looking for something to listen to that would fit in with a stinking hangover. It takes a special kind of music to slot into a hangover and I wasnít having much luck; everything was either too loud, or too mellow, or too fast, or too slow. And then I remembered that I had SINSIN to listen to and it turned out to be just right.
The creation of Motocade guitarist Geordie McCallum, and featuring the musical talents of Zowie bass player Harry Champion and Kerretta drummer Hamish Walker, SINSIN is like a gentle collision between atmospheric electronica and indie rock.
Layers is the first EP, and also the title track (and also my favourite track). It kicks off with the aforementioned title track, a doozy of a song, with some great beats and catchy guitars, before the foot comes of the accelerator and things get laid back, way back.
But while itís mellow, at no point did it get boring or lose that spark thatís going to draw listeners in like moths to a flame. And thatís why I ended up listening to these five tracks several times in the course of that Sunday afternoon and feeling all the better for it.
Motocade guitarist Geordie McCullum returns with a new project under the moniker SINSIN to create a vibrant mix of shoe gaze and ambient rock.
Bringing together three eclectic artists from three renowned Kiwi acts, Geordie is joined by Zowie bass player Harry Champion and Kerretta drummer H. Walker in the live line-up.
After years of experience on the local music scene to the success of several album releases, chart placements and numerous performances, the dynamic trio crossed paths, joined forces and embarked on the new project.
