Ocean Sounds 2018

Classic Rock - - Buyer’s Guide -

Com­pris­ing songs from their three Ks­cope al­bums, and ac­com­pa­nied by a stu­dio film shot in a re­mote spot in Nor­way, Ocean Sounds is the per­fect in­tro­duc­tion to this slightly strange but com­mand­ing Rus­sian duo. Singer Mar­jana Semk­ina brings to mind Kate Bush at her most other-worldly, while vir­tu­oso pi­anist Gleb Kolyadin stirs clas­si­cal dex­ter­ity into lush sound­scapes. Joined on the record by the live band that has served them so well over the past year or two, they show off these songs to their best ad­van­tage. High­lights in­clude the del­i­cate, brood­ing In­side and Touch­ing II and the swelling cham­ber prog of Li­bretto Hor­ror.
