Aya Sinclair

Aya Sinclair is a musician from the Pennines in the former kingdom of Northumbria. Her work is primarily concerned with the affect of memory on the physical body. Drawing from the lineage of UK soundsystem culture alongside delocalised internet scenes, she's made and released music with labels such Hyperdub Records, YCO, Tri Angle, Wisdom Teeth and Astral Plane recordings. In October 2021 she released her debut LP 'im hole' to great critical response, Pitchfork's Best New Music chief among the lot. Aya has scored and soundtracked projects for the BBC, Manchester International Festival, NTS and CTM Festival Aya's live performance can be distilled down to drum go fast, shout at audience, roll on table – a tried and tested formula.
