Constance Hauman - FALLING INTO NOW

BUY CD

 

“The Best Albums Of 2015… Constance Hauman, Falling Into Now” – Caroline Sullivan, The Guardian (UK)

“A should-be shoe-in soundtrack for the Twin Peaks revival.” – Towerload.Com

“In this experimental music, Hauman proves herself to be a musician of the first rank… a sophisticated and mature work.” – Oliver Fraenzke, The New Listener (Germany)

“Hauman’s soulful voice and the mostly spare musical backing takes these pitch-black lyrics to a place that wouldn’t have been out of place in Kurt Weill’s work or in the perceptive downside of pre-Hitler era cabaret. Highly Recommended.” – Rod Nicholson, Scene Magazine (UK)

“Songs such as Dark Angel, Sorry Eyes, Broken Pearl, Burn the House Down, Safety, Angels and Autumn Leaves trace a narrative line that is strengthened by music that effortlessly takes its cues from both Cocteau Twins and Michael Nyman.” – Tony Clayton-Lea, Irish Times

 

Istopia’s debut release was FALLING INTO NOW by Constance Hauman. With it, she made her debut as a pop chanteuse and a skilled and emotionally trenchant songwriter.  The album presents a cycle of songs that are conceptually and affectively linked and which recount Ms Hauman’s odyssey from the edge of darkness to a land of new beginnings and illumination.

The 14 songs on the album document the pain and complexity of broken relationships, betrayal and the fortitude one manifests in both integrating and leaving the past behind. While FALLING INTO NOW recounts a deeply personal journey, it is one that anyone who has known love and loss can both relate to and empathize with.
