Sanguine Hum is the third group to feature the line up of Matt Baber, Joff Winks, Paul Mallyon and Brad Waissman and builds on the strong foundations left by its preceding musical ancestors. In effect, Sanguine Hum is a “no holds barred” approach to being a rock band. Complex ensemble work, profound song-writing, uniquely ambitious instrumental pieces and an equally important attention to the sonic landscape of the music as a whole give the band its defining characteristics. Sanguine Hum will excite both existing fans of Joff Winks Band and Antique Seeking Nuns and open the door for a brand new audience looking to engage with music of integrity, passion and musical intelligence.
