Dirty Projectors – “Dance For You”

By Amrit Singh / June 15, 2012

“There is an answer, I haven’t found it / But I will keep dancing ’til I do.” Dirty Projectors are just under a month away from releasing Swing Lo Magellan, and the record’s second advance track introduces a lot of its themes — both lyrically (creative expression in the face of spiritual uncertainty) and musically (orchestral composition, handclaps, intertwining guitar solos) — while still managing to be unassuming and pretty. Dirty Projectors are doing a lot but come off breezy, turning in a proper song on a record that is shaping up to be Dirty Projectors’ most song-oriented to date. “Dance For You” is here:


Swing Lo Magellan is out 7/10 in the US, and the day before internationally, via Domino. Until then, there is “Dance For You” and “Gun Has No Trigger.”
