A singer, songwriter, producer, and self-confessed media junkie, Dani Rosenoer has been a fixture of Canada’s music scene for the past decade, working with bands like Three Days Grace and Devour The Day, while also forging his own solo career with a string of impressive independent albums and EP’s. A unique talent, he’s made an indelible mark on the industry, thanks to the release of his new album, ‘D-Sides and Darkjams’, and now, he’s shared a very special new music video.
Born in Moscow, but raised in Jerusalem, Dani later immigrated with his family to Toronto, Canada, where he currently resides. Classically trained on the piano from a young age, he found his passion for music early, and over the years, he’s never stopped chasing his dream. In 2016, Dani released his second full-length album via Pledge Music, an album that would lay the foundation for ‘D-Sides and Darkjams’.
Taken from his stellar album, ‘The Big Mistake’ sees Dani revisiting his past and shaping it into something new. As he explained in the video’s caption, “I wrote this song for someone but then they disappeared without a trace. So, I took the lyrics and melody and remade the track. We all take chances and make mistakes. One can easily become the other. So, is it a risk worth taking? Sometimes it feels like the same mistake is being made every single day.”
He continued, “As long as you don't expect a different outcome, it's all good, right? Then you start to question it. Should I have used a different thumbnail? Is today a good day to upload it? Should I ask people to share and comment? Is anyone gonna watch this or is it all just a big mistake? Alanna filmed me play and sing, then edited this video. I love it (no mistake there). Hope you enjoy, thanks for watching!”
An immediately intriguing release, ‘D-Sides and Darkjams’ is a clever mix of re-imagined singles and brand-new recordings that have been carefully stitched together to create a complex and captivating tale. Recorded at his home studio between 2019 and 2021, the album blends electronic overtones with stark, progressive pieces, creating a visceral maelstrom of sounds that will have you hooked from the start.
Released exclusively on Bandcamp, the new album is an impressive blend of old and new releases that travel through Dani’s complete catalogue, proving his talents time and time again. You can stream the full release below, which includes an exclusive bonus track, ‘Collide (Acoustic)’ that will only be available on Bandcamp.
