Show Review

Sharon Van Etten's Are We There is a darkly intense album that neither wallows nor broods, because every moment is an act of unadulterated feeling. And yet, Van Etten's aesthetic is such that the darkness of her work is not suffocating. The record's leading single, "Your Love Is Killing Me," is an emotionally violent account of love told with harrowing cogency. The kind of content not unlike director Sean Durkin's breakout film Martha Marcy May Marlene, in which an increasingly paranoid woman attempts to re-assimilate with her family after escaping an abusive cult. This video, starring Carla Jurianother rising star who cut her teeth on digestible darkness, in the highly acclaimed German film "Wetlands"perfectly depicts Van Etten's brand of darkness, void of drama.

Artist Bio

Sharon Van Etten is a Jersey born, Tennessee raised, Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter. She grew up playing anything placed in front of her: piano, violin, guitar, etc. Later, as her nascent musicality bloomed into full sprung awareness, she joined every choir and musical she could possibly audition for. This eventually lead to Sharon writing her own material, songs she wouldn't start performing live until she moved back to the east coast. In the interim she found her own voice and began a love-affair with the grass-roots style of music that flowers throughout her debut release.
