((Department of Eagles)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Department of Eagles

This is music made to make you happy. Department of Eagles (formerly "Whitey on the Moon UK") is a frequently folk-ish and sometimes electro-ish Brooklyn duo full of a strange kind of sunshine. The band is comprised of Fred Nicolaus and Daniel Rossen. You know Dan. He's in that great dream-pop band, Grizzly Bear (and he wrote a good chunk of the songs on Grizzly Bear's best album, Yellow House). You may or may not know Fred, depending on how many people you know.

With Department of Eagles, Dan plays multiple instruments and sings his tenor most tremendous (in his blurry Damon Albarn-esque best), while Fred mostly rocks the beats. They both write the songs though. And while these songs haven't yet made the whole world sing, that's just because most of the world doesn't know Department of Eagles' melodies will cast their cares far away (albeit in a somewhat strange way). Lo-fi mellowness with a little giddy-up.
