Daniel Rossen

The name Daniel Rossen probably doesn’t mean much to you, but perhaps you’ve heard of the bands Grizzly Bear and Department Of Eagles. Daniel is in both. Either way, he just released his first solo EP and it’s an extremely interesting listen if you like your music indie and creative. Here’s the best song from the EP, Silent Song:

Silent Song

Play

Lyrics

Exile on the hill
Gardener in the mire
You’re diggin’ up a swamp
He’s rising from the field
A mess of gold and green
Nightmare in the mud

There you are
There you are
There you are
There you are

Brat on borrowed ground
Poser in the grass
Tell us what you’ve learned
Forbidding silent walls
The beast out in the bog
Sing a mournful song

Silent song (is this what you want?)
Silent song (is this how you’d have it?)
Silent song (is this what you want?)
Silent song (is this how you’d have it)

Never fear
I know there’s work here to redeem you
Still, it’s clear
There’s not a word, a word that could save you

If I had a chance to see
The friends I’ve loved and lost
I’d beg for their return
I’ll dig until I bleed
Drink until I rot
Lord I know it’s wrong

So help me on (is this what you want?)
Help me on (is this how you’d have it?)
Help me on (is this what you want?)
Help me on (is this how you’d have it?)

Help me on
Help me on
