[News] Mariana Semkina to release new EP “Disillusioned” in November 2021

Following her 2020 debut solo album “Sleepwalking,” Iamthemorning vocalist Mariana Semkina returns with her new EP “Disillusioned,” scheduled for release on October 1, 2021. The trailer release for her forthcoming EP, combining Dark Folk with elements of Electronica and continues the evolution of Mariana as a solo artist. Watch the official EP trailer through the YouTube player below:

The “Disillusioned EP” features 5 tracks comprised of 3 original new songs alongside 2 covers sung in Icelandic and Hungarian, in which multiple layers of Mariana’s vocals combine with Ambient Electronica to create an ethereal choir like effect.

The title “Disillusioned” is partly a reflection of Mariana’s state of mind while writing the EP alongside a desire to have more control over her own work.

This has led to her decision to self-release the EP having previously released her debut on Kscope adding: “having full control over your creations is quite precious and beautiful so i will enjoy it while i have energy to do absolutely everything myself to bring my projects to life. It’s a lot of work and a lot of responsibility but neither one scares me, i’m used to both.”
