Where are they from
Iamthemorning is an independent chamber progressive band originated in Russian city St. Petersburg in 2010.

Who are they
The core and permanent line-up of the band consists of mere piano (Gleb Kolyadin) and vocals (Marjana Semkina). In times iamthemorning performs as an acoustic duet. However, for the most live performances and occasional recordings band sometimes uses — in various combinations — sessional guitar, bass-guitar, drums, string quartet, and number of rather unconventional instruments including harp.

As the cofounder of the band, Gleb, has a classic music education, he takes a great care knowing that all of the listed above are also with the conservatory background. In fact this precise worrying with music quality became a band motto quite from the beginning.

Themes and references
The songwriting is rather rich with metaphorical layers: it references Shakespearean poetry, images and a sign of modern culture, visual aesthetics of Pre-Raphaelites and at the same time adopts nearly every significant musical achievement of a progressive rock genre, connotating with the kind of Porcupine Tree, Philip Glass and Kate Bush, musically and lyrically.
For a careful listener the songwriting of Iamthemorning vocalist Marjana tends to describe these deep emotional places, where ones go when overwhelmed with the reality of the world. On the contrary of what might have been thought, there isn’t just «sadness, loneliness and pain» in Iamthemorning’s lyrical field; there are beauty, happiness and hope too.

    I'm wondering if the band name is an Oceansize reference as well.

    Инструмент Гэвина в The Simple Story по звучанию сразу напомнил мне проект Dizrhythmia с его же участием. Красивый мини-альбом ^_^
