Torn Sail

What SFTOC says: We can’t say it better than Wyndham Wallace of Uncut:
“TORN SAIL’s music is so utterly timeless that it could have been released any time since the mid 1960s. Calling upon the likes of Tim Buckley, The Moody Blues and David Crosby, more recent acts like Verve (before they became The Verve), Sun Kil Moon and Talk Talk, as well as enduring influences such as Joni Mitchell, Lucinda Williams and Pink Floyd (but only up to The Wall), it wears its heart on its sleeve unashamedly…”

What the band says: Torn Sail is a British psychedelic alt-folk-rock band fronted by Huw Costin, perhaps better known for his work with Earth The Californian Love Dream & collaborations with left-field disco artists Smith & Mudd, along with his own critically acclaimed solo albums Regrets (2009) and Something/Nothing (2013). Costin has also worked with Mark Lanegan, who contributes to the band’s recently completed debut album. Lanegan described the album as “a masterpiece”.
