S:BAHN RELEASE NEW SINGLE ‘SYNC OR SWIM’

S-Bahn

Sync or Swim is the new Single by S:Bahn: a celebration of Melbourne’s solitary confinement and the future we are all aching for.

It’s the first taste of Queen of Diamonds the LP scheduled for Vinyl release in early 2021 on the Parisien label: Polaks Records.

“I miss the synchronised swimming, I miss the hockey and I miss the darts. I know its not about winning, its all about not taking part”

The 2020 line up sees original members Kristian Brenchley (guitar), Dik (guitar/vocals) and Denis Leadbeater (drums) joined by new bass player Rene Schaefer. The band reformed late last year with a frenzy of songwriting and a “scorched earth” policy with respect to the back catalogue • there was to be no rehashing of the past.

A low-key comeback show of all new songs was booked at the Old Bar on Valentines Day and then S:Bahn was back in business. Queen of Diamonds (only the band’s second album) was recorded by Idge at Soundpark, Northcote over 4 days in June/July 2020.

Intense sessions squeezed into the brief period when Melbourne’s Covid-19 lockdown restrictions were temporarily relaxed.

Kristian was based in New York up until last year, playing in no-wave rockers WOMAN and alongside ex-Sea Scout Tim Evans in Degreaser.
Dik has been immersed in his electronic “Detonic Recordings” label, as well as releasing music as mnttaB and Distant Stars.


Denis runs an Ober-cool clothing design store and has been seen drumming with Dacios and Rootbeer, while concentrating on his post-rock duo Under the Sea. Rene played guitar in The Bites and is currently a member of post-punk dark-wavers Banish.

S:Bahn’s first LP was the legendary “North Sea Clean” released through Mushroom Distribution Services in 1996. This followed the debut “Stock Footage” EP, released by Shock in 1995. The last recordings the band made were for the classic AuGo-Go Compilation ‘Wonder from a Quarter Acre”.
