Multi-instrumentalist Daniel Rossen of Grizzly Bear and Department of Eagles will be releasing his solo debut next March. “Saint Nothing” is the first cut from the upcoming EP Silent Hour/Golden Mile.
“When you spend so much time touring around, you can lose perspective on what you’re trying to do. All the sudden, I had no idea what to do or what to make or anything…These songs were a way for me to figure that out again, getting my legs back.” – Daniel Rossen
“Saint Nothing” is tranquil and meditative; simple but deep. The piano, at times, resembles Grizzly Bear; the voice, at times, resembles DoE, but the way everything is put together, the instrumentation and the evolution of the song… it feels like he takes a step sideways from DoE and Grizzly Bear. It’s good to see Rossen aiming for a different style, a very personal one.
