Artist: SHARON VAN ETTEN
Who: Eminent singer-songwriter born
in Belleville (New Jersey) 41 years ago
Active: Since 2007 / 6 studio LPs (new one incl.)
Uncut Magazine (British music monthly): “We’ve Been Going… is above all an incredible sounding record. Across its 10 tracks, it incorporates the Jupiter synths and saturnine beats of Remind Me Tomorrow and the stark, swooning strum of her early records to create truly a cosmic dynamic range, from the softest whisper to the most desolate scream.” Score: 4/5.
Turn Up The Volume: More orchestral and even more poignant than before. Not one mediocre track here. My ears tell me that this is Van Etten‘s top-of-the-range album (so far). The restless soul spellbinds from start to finish.
Her heavenly voice, her passional stories and her five-star songwriting
competency are the key components of this masterly achievement.
Btw, Sharon also surprised her fans
(like me) by not dropping singles ahead of the LP release.
Key tracks: Darkness Fades / I’ll Try / Anything / Headspace / Mistakes
