Daneshevskaya – “Scrooge”


“Scrooge” is a beautiful track from Brooklyn-based artist Daneshevskaya. Touting a glistening folk-forward sound, Daneshevskaya’s endearing vocal presence plays with ethereal charm alongside the stirring acoustics and soft key-laden touches. The bass-y backing at 01:47 adds a warming, symphonic component throughout the track’s remainder. “Scrooge” plays with lush, consuming beauty throughout, a striking release from this promising artist.

“I have spent years singing backup for friends bands and writing songs privately,” the artist says. “After showing them to people I decided to record one and put it out. This one is about when you villainize someone so that you can erase them but you end up erasing part of yourself in the process.”

“Scrooge” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of November 2019’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Indie Folk.
