South London folk collective The Winches reach deep into Americana folk and deliver a four-minute jam.

Putting the bluegrass into Bermondsey and the Country into Camberwell, South London folk collective The Winches share a jubilant folk-dance reel ‘Kitchen Sink’ via Hideous Mink Records (Opus Kink, Fake Turins, Alien Chicks).

Speaking about the track’s narrative, vocalist Maisy Banks explains:

“‘Kitchen Sink’ tells the tale of a wise old woman battling her regrets over lost time while embracing the euphoric relief of finally removing herself from a virulent and baneful situation. The ‘handsome man’, though impressively giddying, is foolishly assured in his grip over the old woman. This track tells the tale of how she escapes from him and confronts the certain misery he will surely succumb to. ‘Kitchen Sink’ is bitter and mournful but with a celebratory tone, the old woman is experiencing a cathartic release in the midst of the ensuing chaos. She pains over years lost but revels in her newfound clarity.”

‘Kitchen Sink’ is out now.
