Two German websites Der Hörspiegel and Blueprint Fanzine have reviewed High Tides, the latest release on Isotopia Records by Constance Hauman.
“An impressive treasure trove which provides something for diverse moods.”
“Encased in a red digibook with a white design, you will find a CD in addition to a comprehensive booklet. It includes ten songs that Constance Hauman – a singer with classical training as well as an actress, pianist, songwriter and a producer – has recorded for her new work. The album begins with the title track, followed by a pop inspired song called “Run Sister”. Constance Hauman then explores different genres and styles, which demonstrate her skills in a broad sense. Overall, this album proves to be an impressive treasure trove which provides something for diverse moods.” – Michael Brinkschulte, Der Hörspiegel
“Constance Hauman perfectly understands her craft, knows how to use her voice in the right way and does so with real dedication.”
“In the latest delivery of CDs which I received from Blueprint, there were a lot of very strange albums. “High Tides” by the multitalented-artist Constance Hauman also belongs in this category of strange, yet enthralling music. This lady, who is in demand as both an opera singer and a pop singer, brings to light an album that creates a sense of tension between electro, ambient, classical, Wave, jazz, funk, pop and much more. Sometimes I want to call it a darker version of Kate Bush, but there are really no possibilities for comparison, at least I can’t think of any, perhaps I’m just too limited here. What I can say for sure is: Constance Hauman perfectly understands her craft, knows how to use her voice in the right way and does so with real dedication. Whether it bubbles, rings or rocks it hardly matters, what is prominently on display is the artist’s range. In my opinion, a particularly inspired track is “Lonely Xmas” a song that utterly hits its mark.” – Blueprint Fanzine
