Daniel Rossen

Before Grizzly Bear became a band that a bunch of people know, Daniel Rossen had never really tried his luck as that quintessential solo singer-songwriter. In fact, when he started writing the five trenchant songs that form his upcoming debut on Warp Records, he thought they might simply be demos for a new Grizzly Bear album or themes he’d soon forget. But late in 2011, these tunes started to feel for Rossen like a unified declaration — about unease with the world around you, about indeterminacy in your own life, and the ability somehow to navigate both.
