mp3: Kjartan Bue – Rosen and Danny

With his single ‘Old Woman’, Kjartan Bue demonstrated an incredible talent for gorgeous songwriting and stunning lyrics.  Now the Scandinavian folk-singer is back with a new track that has him barring his teeth and adding some rock to his folk sound.  After some acoustic noodling, ‘Rosen and Danny’ bursts open with some dogs barking and furious strumming as Bue begins describing the harrowing love story of Rosen and Danny.  Just like on ‘Old Woman’, some of these lyrics and images cut deep and Bue even pulls off some Grizzly Bear-esque dynamics with shifting intensities throughout the song.
