RUSSIAN PROGRESSIVE DUO IAMTHEMORNING ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM
"LIGHTHOUSE" FEAT. GUESTS GAVIN HARRISON (PORCUPINE TREE, KING CRIMSON),
COLIN EDWIN (PORCUPINE TREE) & MARIUSZ DUDA (RIVERSIDE, LUNATIC
SOUL), MIXED BY MARCEL VAN LIMBEEK (TORI AMOS).
"Lighthouse" out April 1
RUSSIA - Kscope will release the brand new studio album Lighthouse from Russian progressive duo iamthemorning on April 1 (June 3 in France). Lighthouse is the follow up to the band's 2014 album Belighted. Lighthouse will be released on CD, LP (with MP3 download code) and digitally.
Formed in 2010 in St Petersburg, Russia, iamthemorning features pianist Gleb Kolyadin and the charismatic vocals of Marjana Semkina. The band self-released its debut album in 2012 before signing to Kscope and releasing Belighted, its first record for the label in September 2014. In 2015 the duo toured Europe with labels mates, the art-progressive outfit, Gazpacho.
As with Belighted, the engineering and mixing on Lighthouse is handled by Marcel van Limbeek (Tori Amos) and self-produced by Gleb and Marjana. The album also features guest musicians Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree, King Crimson) on drums, Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree) on bass and additional vocals on the album's title track by Mariusz Duda (Lunatic Soul, Riverside).
Lighthouse is a rich and eclectic album with echoes of classical music, the Canterbury scene, northern folk, jazz and electronic sounds. Featuring a story of the progression of mental illness, the album takes the listener through the stages with the story's central character, her attempts to fight it, and temporal remission leading to a final breakdown. Lyrically, the works and lives of Virginia Woolf and Sylvia Plath inspire the album.
Recorded across London, Moscow & St Petersburg, the core instrument of the band, the grand piano, was recorded in Mosfilm Studios Moscow, one of the largest and oldest studios in Russia. Founded in 1920, Mosfilm is renowned for recording orchestras for soundtracks for the most famous Soviet-era films, including works by Tarkovsky and Eisenstein.
