Kscope Re-Release Debut Album From Russian Progressive Duo Featuring Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree, King Crimson) & Mixed By Marcel Van Limbeek (Tori Amos)! Formed in 2010 in St Petersburg, Russia, iamthemorning feature pianist Gleb Kolyadin and vocalist Marjana Semkina. After self-releasing their debut album in 2012 and an EP early 2014, the band released their new album & debut for Kscope entitled 'Belighted' in September 2014. Recorded and mixed by Marcel van Limbeek (Tori Amos), the album also features Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree, King Crimson) on drums. Gleb Kolyadin, himself a classically trained musician, took great care selecting the right musicians to ensure a high standard of musicianship for both their live performances and recording utilising guitar, bass, drums, string quartet, and a number of rather unconventional instruments including harp, as well as performing as an acoustic duet. Taking their influence, both musically and lyrically, from the greats of the progressive rock arena including the likes of Porcupine Tree, Philip Glass and Kate Bush, their song writing is rich with metaphorical layers: referencing Shakespearean poetry, images of modern culture, visual aesthetics of Pre-Raphaelites leading the listener to deep emotional places. Marjana Semkina explains "there isn't just sadness, loneliness and pain in Iamthemorning's lyrical field; there is beauty, happiness and hope as well."
