The Sinclair Sinclair is an alternative band consisting of Keit Kukk - lead singer, Raido Rahnel - guitarist, composer, Taago Piisang - electronic soundscapes, Jan Pillav on drums.
Keit is a mesmerizing creature with a haunting voice. Her siren song invites you to a melancholic journey down dark nighttime roads and foggy morning countrysides all the way to the seaside where she drowns you in your own heartache.
The music, predominantly written by Raido, paints you a perfect picture of a voyage with its mysterious electronic sounds and rather ethereal yet robotic soundscapes which are grounded by the reverberations of the acoustic band.
Taago's ability to conjure up velvety chords that transfix you until you forget to breathe. Thanks to which their live shows are dynamic and powerful.
Jan is the liveliest of the four, with an ability to capture all eyes with his strong, passionate drumming that adds roots to the otherwise ethereal composition.
Their debut EP Dreamers of The Dreams took the viewers to a place where heartbreak translates into numbness. Lost loves are ghostlike entities that haunt the possessed for years passing by whilst they try to flee the pain.
Whereas Breaking The Waves propels us straight into the outer space, entraps us in its magnetic field like a pulsar and then leaves us hanging there in our ever unstable weightlessness.
The Sinclair Sinclair hail from snowy Tallinn, Estonia and is signed to London based label Beautiful Strange.

"The Sinclair Sinclair are back, and they are back with a vengeance. Intertwined against a shrubbery of electronica and four prickly branches of supernatural substance, “The Dreamers Of The Dreams” EP is a continuous tale of faraway alternative and absent-minded guitar bliss". Aerial Noise
“While not as sugary sweet as Cocteau Twins, they’re mining the same ethereal landscape much of the 4AD roster owned at that time”. KnoxRoad
“Their sound, influenced by the likes of The XX and Zola Jesus, makes for a sanguine and sultry vision”. Yvynyl blog
