Daneshevskaya, aka the songwriting project of NYC preschool social worker Anna Deneshevskaya Beckerman, just released a new single, and it's something you need to check out immediately. "Challenger Deep" is a stunning, dreamlike song that is both lush and sparse. It's a simple song that focuses on Beckerman's vocals and harmonies, and it's not like we could pay attention to much else in this one. The song is simply gorgeous and feels like your favorite children's stories did when you were a kid, despite this song not being childlike at all. "Challenger Deep" is such a simple and beautiful song, despite it being quite complex.
Daneshevskaya says of her new single:
“There’s a story I read to the kids that I work with about how, when you say goodbye to someone, there’s an invisible string that connects you. My version of that is seeing someone at the end. Even if it is pretend, it’s a nice idea.”
You can watch the video for "Challenger Deep" below. Long is the Tunnel is due out November 10 on Winspear, and is available for pre-order here. For more on Daneshevskaya, check out the artist on Instagram and Twitter.
