Iamthemorning release Chalk And Coal

Iamthemorning have released a lyric video for their track Chalk And Coal.

It features on pianist Gleb Kolyadin and vocalist Marjana Semkina’s album Lighthouse, which is out on April 1 via Kscope.

Semkina says: “Chalk And Coal is in a way a final milestone on the album. It is the darkest one and in a way it is very representative for Lighthouse in general, since it is a very cross-genre piece of music that eventually turns into something rather eclectic.

“Some dark jazz influence in used. Diminished chords and trumpet solo, glitched drums – all of that is rather new for us. Mood-wise it was inspired by David Bowie’s Sue (Or In a Season of Crime). Lyrically it represents the final twist of the album storyline, the final breakdown.”

Lighthouse, which features guest contributions from Gavin Harrison, Colin Edwin and Mariusz Duda, is available for pre-order via the Kscope online store.
