Daneshevskaya Announces Debut Album Long Is The Tunnel

Daneshevskaya, the project of Brooklyn-based Anna Beckerman, is making her Winspear debut this fall with Long Is The Tunnel. Earlier this summer, Beckerman teased a forthcoming full-length with the single “Somewhere In the Middle,” a multi-faceted acoustic track that swelled and sprawled into a heavy, drum-focused rock arrangement. That same type of dynamic construction resurfaces on today’s new track, “Big Bird.” Laced with distortion and supple synth notes, the song aches through bursting percussion and Beckerman’s airy singing that thins out into a beautiful, angelic falsetto. “The biggest bird I’ve ever seen,” she intones. “I don’t know what the reason was. I can’t tell a dove from the biggest bird I’ve ever seen.” It’s an earworm melody that rises and falls and glitters, culminating in a field recording of birds flocking to some unknown destination.

Beckerman says of the track: “I wrote ‘Big Bird’ on GarageBand on my phone. It automatically loops when you use it on your phone so the song ended up being a loop. When I showed the demo to Artur [Szerejko], Ruben [Radlauer], and Hayden [Ticehurst], I said we could turn it into a full song but they were into the loop. The lyrics are about when a big bird swoops down and everyone in the area stops to look at it together. I like moments like that where everyone is childlike and curious.”

Long Is The Tunnel was produced by Radlauer of Model/Actriz, Szerejko and Ticehurst, and the record features guest contributions from Black Country, New Road’s Lewis Evans.
