These are beautiful, thanks. Simple, spare, I wish more people would channel that moment of Erik Satie. The first track you link Серенада ("Serenade") is a bit too film-scorish for me, but Вальс ("Waltz") is absolutely lovely. Except seriously, take the fucking cigarette out of your mouth when filming a performance. Looking forward to hearing the EP.

I don't think he was thinking about the smoke, dude. Some things just aren't part of the staging aspect of live performance, and bad habits are probably the last to go. This is very well-composed material, thanks for sharing.
