The just released E.P. VAILA is Konstantins forth release and the second under his own name. The songs feel like poetic journeys. They are ethereal but mix with crisp wavy beats, familiar and warm but also distant and endless. Schimanowskis voice is gliding through this dreamlike scenery with powerful suspense – confidently flocculating into a vast glowing night sky.
„Enlivened by epic orchestrations and sprinkled with autumnal melancholy […] gentle, haunting and beautiful vocals.“ Rolling Stone
„Out of the ordinary, because of the singer’s particular breath. Whatever the tempo, he lives each track with a subtle intensity.“ Tsugi Mag
„Inspired by his vulnerable dreams, we’re overwhelmed by the beauty of „Ultraviolet“, the opener, as well as the intoxicating „Into The Flow“ and „Thai Clothes […] Escape with Konstantin Schimanowski’s sublime new EP.“ Les Oureilles curieuses
„A magnificent beauty, shock infatuation included.“ Frizz Magazin
Konstantin Schimanowskis debut E.P. Vague Pure Affection is a love letter to an island in the deep north of Europe. The little Shetland island of Vaila. It is a sprawling collection of lush and airy songs, showcasing the artist talent in both songwriting and production. The music seems to drift high above the ground and Schimanowski’s voice breaks out of every pattern introduced – liberating itself the most in the E.P’s fourth track „Crossing the Bridge“, where it leaps with bold passion into another space. The artwork is created by renowned danish-ukranian artist Sergei Sviatchenko.
