We've loved the singles we've heard from Daneshevskaya, but we're still surprised by her latest single. "ROY G BIV" might be the New York pre-school social worker/musician's most accessible single yet. This new song still focuses on her mesmerizing vocals, but despite being just over two minutes long, it feels like you've gone on a journey. In its short time, "ROY G BIV" sounds like an alt-pop song, an orchestral piece, a song from a musical, alt-folk, etc. Daneshevskaya does this so effortlessly and makes the inclusion of different styles so gently that you hardly notice it. This new song is brilliant, and has us even more excited for an album we were highly anticipating already.
Anna Daneshevskaya Beckerman says of her latest single:
“This song was definitely inspired by working with kids and seeing how their worlds hinge upon small discrepancies. I always love when kids instinctually put things in order, and I could see a lot of the time how putting things in the right order calmed them. I think adults do that too in their own way.”
