Still working on that hot first release.



Sink (aka Matthew Sforcina) is the next source of an original, intellectual sound for this present day. Think Beck, The Dandy Warhols, Bjork and you will be thinking Sink; all coming from a mind that aspires to create the original, and the innovation to do this with whatever resources he has at his fingertips. His music like a work of art, must be taken with thought, both in lyrical content and musical structure.

It all started when this one mind decided to pick up a guitar and write a song. Motivation for this act at this time was comfort. A damaged mind from a damaged philosophy and only just then, coming up for air.

Motivation changing and his music growing before his eyes, Matt always made way for spontaneous lyrics. Direct streamings from his subconscious to the page, and then into a song, all went in the mix to create a cauldron of depth for his music. Safely now called universal emotional expression - the duty to, and love in expression became his motivation. He now often writes of the greed of society and the injustices called 'right', in the most indirect manner. He hopes to instill these thoughts in peoples minds that they may be ready for this planet's future.

Matt started playing solo at jams and the occasional gig – comments always included along the lines: “I don't know who you sound like, but that's not a bad thing”, or “A refreshing change from the worlds musical ditch.” His self taught guitar style blossomed and he further developed his unique jazzy, rock voice. Loving the sounds of grunge, jazz, classical and blues he set out to make a mesh of music featuring highly expressive lyrics. Matt went on to perform many more solo gigs and jams around Perth and Fremantle, Western Australia. Loving the satisfaction of the stage he gained a regular spot at the Swan Hotel.

To reward these beginnings an impressive repertoire of original songs was created. A small release of some of the earlier songs followed. Matt released a recording called 'Delectable' at the Swan hotel in May 2006. When on stage he seemed to provoke an awe in people, some froze in their last movement (never to move again). Copies of this recording were handed out on the night and his music was widely accepted.

Here and now Matthew Sforcina has recently released his alias Sink. Having a fantastic ear for melodies, harmonies, and beat, Sink realised there was need for producing his music and the gathering of a band. He added grungey harmonies, said to be “grinding” but “orgasmic”; classical piano and other keyboard sounds to fill the guitar's notion; and he bought a drum kit for $200 and had a bash. What results is a taunting, dissonant sound which resonates through your ear drums repeatedly; and you are, of course, left craving more.

For his band Sink has chosen a fine huddle of merry people. Including the dignified Tim Hall on the keys and the powerful Cat Austin to be the 2nd vocalist. Between them they innovatively incorporate percussion in each song. Sink has grown with his band and is ready to release his fully produced works commercially.

Music is Sink's life commitment. He hopes to share inspiration with others and gain recognition in the world. Keep your mind open when absorbing his artistic oriented music and be sure to create a space for the thought contained within. Let it fuck with your head.
