Dirty Projectors' David Longstreth Is at His Most Isolated and Brooding on New Single "Little Bubble"

New MusicWeston PaganoComment

Following the biting first taste of new music from Dirty Projectors that was "Keep Your Name," David Longstreth has released a second single from his still unannounced forthcoming release.

"Little Bubble" explores R&B-leaning tones with gentle piano and violin instrumentation over lines as bare and dark as "I wanna sleep with no dreams / I want to be dead." Alternatingly introspective and aimed outwardly to, assumedly, former partner and bandmate Amber Coffman, Longstreth both deals in themes of isolation and continues to be the only musician credited on the tracks.

Somewhat less cerebral and glitchy than usual, "Little Bubble" has an apparently solo Longstreth at his most straightforwardly brooding, and while Dirty Projectors are keeping the details close to their chest so far, it seems safe to say there is more to come in 2017.
