Sharon Van Etten

Sharon Van EttenSharon Van Etten is signed to Justin Vernon’s label, Jagjaguwar, and she sounds exactly like that. Is it a good thing? I believe it is. The Bon Iver frontman’s taste in music seems to be nearly flawless so far.

This Brooklyn girl has an amazing voice that she twists and bends lazily in unique ways. This track called ‘Serpents’ is from her new album ‘Tramp’, which was produced by Aaron Dessner, one of the founding members of The National. That’s probably why it’s overall sound is so familiar.

Similarities aside, this is fantastic music in its own right. This particular song is like a classic horror movie, constantly delivering the chills and thrills from the beginning to the end.
