Song of the week: “Danse Carribe” by Andrew Bird

By Sydney Moyer, Muse Editor

On perhaps his most elegant album to date, classically trained violinist and chronic whistler Andrew Bird crafted a quintessentially Bird-esque tune in “Danse Carribe,” the first single off Break it Yourself. With lush harmonies woven through gorgeous violin riffs, this track is sure to have you, as Bird says, “mistaking clouds for mountains, oh” (just accept it). Break it Yourself is an album best saved for those hours when you’re neither asleep nor awake, but drifting somewhere in between.

Andrew Bird will play the House of Blues in Boston on May 6.
